An alligator encounter
I was walking the neighbor’s dog so that we both could get some exercise. As we approached a drainage pond, I saw a juvenile alligator, about 1.75m long, sunning itself on the bank. I was a meter above it, on the roadway. As I approached, the dog spooked the alligator, which abruptly thrashed its way into the culvert underneath me. I waited for it to come out again, but it did not.
I wished I had had the notion to take a picture.
