Alligator - Alligator
alligators of Toledo Bend seem to prefer
the most beautiful spots on the lake...
quiet, somewhat remote, infrequently visited,
and lush with other wildlife and plant
life... aside from being a bit antisocial,
they do have great taste for location!
there are plenty of alligators around the
lake, they tend to keep to themselves and
aren't always easy to find. If you are
not familiar with 'gators, please note
- if you get around any 'gators remember
they are not pets - they are wild and dangerous
animals and are not visitor friendly -
second this 14 foot 'gator seems to be
nonchalantly enjoying a lazy swim (above)...
and in less than a heartbeat and a flash
of white water has disappeared below
