OK... The gator I think I could handle if I had a head start on the get away... That many snakes in one place - I'd quit! You could run, but you might run into one of their ankle bittin' cousins as you did.

Great pictures but I think Snopes has debunked the FPL connection. I think the snakes were actually in Texas.

I remember pulling off the side of the highway down South and getting out to have a drink, check the map, etc. It was about that time I saw a 'gator slowly making its way right alongside the car. I figured it would probably be a good idea to get back in and drive on a little further......

If I saw a gator that big ... in a pipe that size ... I'd ask him if he could pull some wire for me ....

Just so long as you don't want me to be the one who ties the draw rope to his tail......

I held a baby alligator down in Fla. once. That was enough! ;\)
