We've had a visitor the last month or so.  My wife keeps seeing him on most days but he always eludes me or my SIL.  Today he was on the bank when I got home and let me get closer but jumped way before the ordinary.  I'm thinking we may have caught him before is why.

For something 300 Million years old, they don't do too bad.

Are you planning on frying or grilling in the new grill pit  ??? :D.  You could always fatten him up so that when I come down to visit I can get to meet him in person  ;D.

We had 2 alligators in the pond today.  One was bigger than the other and the bigger one got away.
The smaller one was captured and released in the back canal.
Here is the one that got away. ::)

Here is the one caught and released.
The video I took of this one is only able to be viewed on my camera for some reason.
It doesn't play on my computer or let me upload it to movie maker or utube. ::)
This last clip was at the very end of it.  Too bad because it was an interesting catch.
It was hooked under the front arm and was quite a challenge.

This guy has been hanging out in between our pond and our neighbor's pond.
I had set up a game cam on a small Palm tree on the other side to try and get pictures of him up close but he hasn't been to that side since I put it up.  The Cam did catch a Raccoon on Saturday night.  The Raccoon is dead today down by the canal and now surrounded by Buzzards. ::)
Either a turtle bit him, the gator or snake?
Here is a picture of the gator.  He is slim but around 5 foot with the tail.

I have a picture of that poor raccoon alive. It's on the card of the game cam next to the pond.  Too dark to go retrieve it at the moment. :D

Went to a wild game supper Saturday night, where one of the offerings was coon.  Bar-b-cued.  Well folks, I have eaten coon before, and it has not changed, it  is tough, and will work your jaw muscles.

Gator is wet land chicken, only red meat.

Oh, at the dinner, black buck and elk wraps were spectacular.
