I encountered the fellow above while walking Gadget the other day. I've seen plenty of medium-sized (5-7 foot) alligators in Georgia, but this is the first big one (too huge). I don't think I'll be walking Gadget there anymore.
The upside is that my dad was visiting when we encountered this monster, so he got to see a big Georgia gator. Now that I've seen one, I don't think I need to see another.
