Oh and the guy who was walking with his dog in Florida when the green-eyed, white-toothed monster attacked him. Dog, a Golden, was told to run and Golden did. (They’re such great dogs. And smart. They see alligators, they run.)
Guy managed to live by poking at the gator’s green eyes. Guy is artist, specializing in Florida’s wildlife. He is now about to do a portrait of his attacker.
The lesson he learned? Alligators are very dangerous.
The lesson I learned? I never, ever want to go to Florida again. Ever.
