This gator has moved into our neighborhood's pond. It is probably about 4 feet in length, so it couldn't eat me, but it could take down a small child or maybe eat some of our local pets (like those yappy dogs you hear at 6 am). I believe it is protected by law and cannot be removed unless it becomes an actual threat. It's okay because I think it is afraid of us more than we are of him, and he keeps to his pond pretty exclusively. And, he is pretty fun to visit.
