    1. Thank you, Denis. Just in case you didn’t spot it…at the end of the post there is a link to a YouTube video showing a man rescue his small dog from the grip of an alligator. Something about the story gripped me … it was caught on cameras put in place by people caring for the nature reserve.


    1. I see you did watch the video and very carefully! I didn’t notice that he was on the wrong side of the fence….but I was pretty sure this was a place where leashes were required (though predators are known to go after dogs on leashes).
