"you make people want to _ _ _ _

"you make people want to _ _ _ _ 

come to Florida ..." Dianne M.

- Official Reptile of the State of Florida
- the American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis)
- once hunted almost to extinction
- it has become populous enough
- that hunts can be held [ yes, they call it a 'harvest' ]
- but, you have to have over $1,000 to participate
- that should weed out some

- when alligators no longer are afraid of humans
- that is when they become dangerous
- it is against the law to feed them
- how can they tell the hand-that-feeds-them
- from another human?
- there are many interesting [ and scary articles on the internet ]

- IF you live here, you know to respect these creatures
- who have been here way before we were born
- shall be here long after we are gone

- if you are going to visit our State
- these are wild animals

- now, seriously
- look at the collage above
- you really want to get up close and make friends with this ?
