Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun...Not!

While taking our morning walk we heard a loud splash as we neared the bridge that crosses the lagoon.  Mac said turtle, I said I don't think so, turtles slide in not jump.  And then we saw a small alligator surface and swim slowly across the lagoon.  As he/she/it neared the far side a second alligator came out from the grass and reeds.  This is so unusual.  They say that alligators are territorial and we've never had 2 alligators in the lagoon at the same time, but there they were, eyeing each other warily and finally one dove under and swam off.
Never a dull moment on our walks.

Update!  Mac just came in from the backyard and says that the alligator that kind of hangs around the lot next door is there and that it is not one of the 2 we just saw, so there are 3 of them floating around.  Not good!

  1. I'm not sure I'd like those for neighbours!! Do you have someone to control the numbers near residential places?
