Larry the Alligator


Marty’s photo of the day #1708: In my new book, Endangered Edens, I have a funny story about “Larry,” an alligator I met while exploring the Everglades. He was blocking a remote dirt road, enjoying the morning sun, so I sat near him and enjoyed the morning with him. Eventually a truck full of park rangers showed up, and Larry had to slide back into his pond to let them pass. Poor Larry instantly lost much of the warmth he had just acquired. This photo shows Larry in his pondprobably a little pissed off.
