Subject: RE: BS: Forget the dog get a Gator
Interestin' to see the conflicting takes on gator vs. croc. We were in N'owlins a few years ago, and took a boat ride in the swamp (not a "swamp boat" a few miles out of town. The guide/captain said that gators eat only during a limited temperature range, and aren't apt to bother you unless hungry, whereas a croc would attack just for something to do. Since then, I've always taken any opportunity to pet an alligator.
