    Yeah, as he is a beast. On the trail I was on, I've seen him stretch from tail in water to nose in water all the way across and the trail is at least 10 feet wide. Even then I made sure there were slower people between me and him...:)

    I saw and had up close encounters with enough gators a year ago in south FL to last me a lifetime. Only way I intend to like them now is fried or blackened.
