Think iguanas are bad - imagine finding one of these in your yard (and not finding your dog)!

Ya, it's sad that this has to be done but we're the ones that screwed it up.
I was hoping the alligators could handle the problem, but not from that photo I/we saw of the one python that semi-consumed that six footer and exploded.

Took my girls to a place called "Shark Valley" this week. No sharks but plenty of other predators (not the human kind).


They were a little anxious about the picture and quickly ran away after the "click". The alligator could not have cared less! Shark Valley is a 15 mile bike path that dips into the heart of Everglades National Park. Critters are everywhere - gators, fish, turtles, snakes, and birds - everywhere!! The alligators literally lie on the bike path to get warm. Not bad till you see one that's 10'+, like this guy...


Shark Valley is now at the top of my list of "Must See in South FL"! They have a tram (for the lazy) and bike rentals for the more adventurous.

Oh man, they must trust you big time to do that. What if it took off after them? Are you crazy?

My wife saw that picture and almost ripped my head off! The girls were in no immediate danger and had more than 10' between them and the gator. We were walking along another path and noticed a gator within inches of me - hissing and pissed off - we quickly got away from it. This place is not for the meek - gators are everywhere - my girls counted 133 gators along the 15 mile path. I almost ran over a snake that shot out of the grass (not a python). The girls were having fun with the Butterflies and Beatles that were following us on the bikes and buzzing around our heads. Great fun, but you have to be alert because all the animals are WILD.

We were eating dinner on the Lanai last evening about 6:00 (still broad daylight) when a coyote showed up about 30 feet away. He didn't seem too afraid of me when I went out to chase him off. We have coyotes around but don't usually see them in the daytime. Hope he doesn't have rabies or something, if he shows up again I'm afraid he'll probably die of lead poisoning.

Here's a recent visitor enjoying my tiki bar.



I bent over to straighten the cover and ended up 12 inches from this.



Now I try to make a lot of noise as I go outside.

I went out this evening to use my ladder and some crazy dove had built her nest in it.



So I had to improvise



On a not-so-cuddly note, some thing (gopher? rabbits?) gnawed my little fig tree off at the ground! It had figs on it - SOMETHING IS GOING TO DIE!!!!!!!
