When visiting Florida, we saw signs such as this one. We noticed this sign in the Orlando Wetlands Park, but we saw them in neighborhoods and golf courses as well. At first I was alarmed that an alligator might be around. So, I was on the lookout. I actually saw a few small ones while walking on a path in the wetlands, and hoped that their mom or dad would not appear. I bet they were around watching the little ones though but we didn’t see them.
Later, I started thinking about the sign and I wondered, “What kind of fool would try to feed them or harass them in the first place?”
I don’t know about you but feeding an alligator or harassing one really doesn’t sound like something I would like to do. I just hope that I never run into one anywhere outside of an Alligator zoo. They have big teeth and very large mouths! Not only that they run real fast! Don’t let this photo fool you!
