    Shows you what I know. I thought Mother alligators/crocodiles brood the eggs but say “see ya later alligator” and leave the hatchlings to fend for themselves.

    Cute little carbon copies of Mom.

      I thought that, too. Maybe that’s crocodiles? I found this page on how protective mother gators are to their eggs and bebehs:

      Imagine the animal chasing the little gator who runs smack into mother. Yipes.

        Today’s Alligator Fact: Baby alligators typically stay with their mother for at least a year, and sometimes up to three years.

          So cool – I didn’t know that either!

            I will join the list of people who were SURE (until we saw this photo) that reptiles did not care for their young. We’ve all seen the sea turtles scrambling unaided for the water; I figured if I’d seen one reptile baby-care practice, I’d seen them all. I learned something today.

        Had no clue this was true, and I consider(ed) myself knowlegable about all types of fauna. *face palm*

    “and don’t stop to eat anyone along the way!”

    But half the fun of visiting the big city is the street food!

      Can they drink the water?

      • allein March 4, 2016 / 1:36 pm

        As long as they’re not in Flint, I suppose.

        • Clairdelune March 4, 2016 / 3:18 pm

          HA! Scary thought: these critters could turn into SuperCritters drinking that stuff…

            Giant lizards are not science fiction!

            • Clairdelune March 4, 2016 / 5:08 pm

              Well I would not mind a giant lizard, as long as it does not have a taste for human steaks, although I would not be keen to have it on my lap ( do like small lizards, though). But gators have TEETH!!! Big ones.

            • allein March 4, 2016 / 5:10 pm

              Would you go so far as to say they are giant teeth? πŸ˜‰

              Alas, Claidelune, you must not visit the Komodo Islands. The dragons there (some 9 feet long or more!) have been known to chow down on people.

              • Clairdelune March 5, 2016 / 12:19 pm

                Thanks for the heads-up, Mr. Max – I’ll limit my island vacations to Hawaii. Aside from the occasional giant flying cockroach (impervious to Raid) there aren’t too many fanged beasties to worry about, except the occasional long-in-the-tooth lounge lizard complete with open shirt and gold chain. πŸ˜€

            • Mr. Max March 5, 2016 / 4:54 pm

              I assure you I look nothing like that. It’s puka shells all the way, baby.

            Dewd, that is so the next SyFy Saturday Night Original Movie.

            The Giant Alligators of the Detroit Sewers: They Spew Fire!!

            • Clairdelune March 5, 2016 / 12:09 pm

              Yep, a sequel coming soon at your neighborhood theater in 3D. I hear the director is rather reptilian-looking and speaks with a funny accent. Reportedly, he has a strange habit: files his teeth every morning, says he likes to keep them sharp.

    I’ve seen a lot of videos where people rush to help mom and duckling cross a roads.
    I don’t see anybody rushing to help this family πŸ˜€

    • Smartypants March 4, 2016 / 3:24 pm

      LOL, I see the white SUV beyond them is stopped – maybe he’ll flag traffic to slow down, but from a safe distance?

      These little ones are so cute – and look how proud and smiley Mama is!

    Ack- Myron and Hubert! Mike could I love you anymore! πŸ™‚

    At CO there was a “Cute or Sad?” tag.

    For me, this is a “Scary or Cute?” tag.

  7. Clairdelune March 4, 2016 / 3:27 pm

    Is this Florida perhaps? One of the several reasons why I would NEVER spend my “golden years” (misnomer!) down there. Nope. Nossiree. No gators in my future. Not even bebehs.

    • Faye March 4, 2016 / 4:24 pm

      Huge Flying Waterbugs!

      • Clairdelune March 4, 2016 / 5:03 pm

        Oh my, did not think about those. Although I could deal better with the waterbugs than the gators and the snakes…. YUCK.

        • Kar March 4, 2016 / 5:16 pm

          On the other hand, the cockroaches are so big that they don’t fit into your ear canal.

          Wait, that doesn’t help, does it.

          • 6rabbits March 5, 2016 / 7:08 pm


        • Gigi_the cat lady March 4, 2016 / 7:23 pm

          For me the bugs are much scarier than the snakes and alligators.

    We’re walking in sunshine, Woah-oh.
    We’re walking in sunshine, Woah-oh.
    And don’t it feel good!

    • Faye March 4, 2016 / 10:29 pm

      Nice! πŸŠβ˜€οΈ

    • Clairdelune March 5, 2016 / 12:01 pm

      Somehow I feel a dissonance between words like “gators” and “adorable”. But that’s just me, I guess. πŸ˜€
