    Snapped this evening while walking the hounds.
    Isn't it a cute little gator? Looked like it,
    right up until it crawled ashore to grab a turtle.


    There's a reason to have 5 foot tall fences, when you have dogs
    and live on a freshwater canal in Florida. Important to keep the pups safe.


    Especially when you realize the turtle it's munching on is about 14 inches long... :eek:

    Where's Troy when you need him?  Choot 'em Clint! Choot 'em!  ;D

    That lizard would turn my 2 Walkers into a couple of light snacks.
    They're fine for squirrels, armadillos, raccons and possums, but "swamp-a-saurus"
    would be a bit more than they can deal with. I do like my Walker hounds as is.

    Depending on the gator and the fence, they can climb over it. :eek:

    You are right about the gators climbing over the fence. Always check the yard before releasing the dogs.

    We drained an impoundment at the Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge and removed all gators. A 6' high fence had been built around it and it was for an apple snail research project. While patrolling one night we saw a gator climb the fence. We didn't interfere as it was important to see if he could do it. He made it. The next night we removed him with the aid of the spot light and a .223 Remington. We had enough time and money tied up so to ensure the accuracy of the experiment, we pumped it down again and added angled wire to the top.
