Default Hey there: anyone want to play with me?

Some animals are always ready to play with those who may pass by. After all, large animals like attention too.

I'm sure that when a gator is that relaxed he's not gonna move fast. Right?

Jabba likes it when you scratch him behind the ears.

Nice shot Steven. Your back yard again, good place to let the g'kids play when they get tiresome.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I know it is just a common gator shot. But you guys know how I'm always looking for humor in nature shots, and the expression on that big boy's face just called out to me to take his picture.

I'm finding that photo endlessly fascinating, and I figured out that it's the second of two very striking and similar images I've seen.

One of the few redeeming values Las Vegas has, is an aquarium exhibit at the Mandalay Bay casino, called Shark Reef. Basically it has almost every marine predator but an orca on exhibit. (Yeah, I know - Las Vegas - who would have thought they would have a predator exhibit?) It's absolutely fascinating, and at the end of the walking path you're at the middle of the bottom of a 1.3 million gallon tank full of sharks all around you. They are swimming in a circle around the tank and the exit takes you through a transparent tunnel. In this tunnel the sharks are swimming straight towards you.

All you see when looking at a shark swimming directly towards you is.......TEETH. And you immediately know that you are looking at an Eating Machine.

Your gator photo is the second time I've been really aware that I'm looking at an Eating Machine.

Great shot - Thanks!

Ted
