Default New pet...

Hi guys,
Just a shot of my new pet gator.
I needed something to keep the dog company when I'm at work.

Actually this was taken down by the local Walmart in a rain water pond

Life's a breeze on a Goldwing...

Not sure about having something like that so near a Walmart - I'd be afraid it would wander through the parking lot sometime looking for dinner. Can't believe something that size can live in a rain water pond, even in Florida.

GW - You can keep your pet. He's too large for my likings.

At least the walmart doesn't have any problems with Pests, like
slow birds
small people
larger people to

Great picture, only I like the bunnies next to our (local version) of the walmart.

That would make quite a speed bump for a Goldwing

I've heard that gators will generally leave you alone as long as you leave them alone, but I have to say that seeing that big guy right next to a parking lot would make me pretty nervous. I agree with Patty -- please keep him down in your neighborhood. Usually I love seeing wildlife, but I'm perfectly happy without any 'gators in my region.
