Yeah, it's a baby, but if you tried to give him a pacifier, he'd still take your hand off!

Hudson,

naaww, thats still the "catch ém by hand" size.

I spend 4 years in High School in Cocoa Beach Florida and was out in the Mangrove Islands almost every weekend.

Still nice shot. I always enjoy when some wildlife shows up on my pictures that I did not know was there.

yea it was a "cute" little rascal....however i wouldnt try and catch that sucker by hand, unless you knew how too. its head was about 8 inches long. the whole thing was about 4 1/2 feet or so. might not take a hand off but could definatly send one home with stitches....ofcoarse i doubt it would ever harm someone that was not provoking it, atleast not at that size....but who knows where mommy is....

Yup but you don't have top go all the way to FL!
You can see a dot in the pond in the top middle part just behinf the small metal bldg. I think is the gator... ????

Not from the Heli but it did get my attention

Same pond and day as the above bldg shots & looked to be about 5-6 foot long!

This place was in Brookshire just 15 min. west of Space City Heli FunFly in Katy Texas.
