"I might have a brain the size of a thumbnail, but my teeth are bigger than yours. Do we have an understanding?"

 

On the way home, we decided to take a quick trek into the Everglades. This big boy is one of several captive alligators at Gator Park.

 

We saw them in the wild, too, but none were the size of this fellow.

 

Did you know this creature can exist for up to 6 or 7 years without eating a bite of food? It's true, in fact, they stay lean and mean because they eat only a few pounds of food in an entire year.

 

No wonder they're so ugly -- I'd be that ugly, too, living on that kind of diet.
