Wild Gator Along NASA Parkway

I told you one time that we saw a big gator along the ditch at NASA Parkway but, I didn't get a good picture. Today, while driving on the same area, I saw this. It is about 8 foot. I took this picture while sitting inside the car along the side of the road. Believe me, the car is a bit distant away. The ditch here has no fence so; they can always crawl on to the road if they wanted too.

The gator tried to submerge its body. Trying to hide from me and made a left stride trying to see what's going on to where I was.

This gator is huge and fat. When I first saw it, it was swimming straight at the middle of the ditch. Now that he saw me. it went on the side and trying to feel the area.

What you see here is just part of the head, Believe me this is huge. Gators in this area is seen as ordinary sight. This area is part of animal sanctuary. The Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge has 140,000 acres. This place served as a refugee that provides natural habitat for more than 1,500 species of plants and animals, that includes this creature.

This is the second biggest gator that I have seen in the wild. There are tiny gators that looks cute and adorable LOL but, this one is rough looking.

I wish I will the big gator again so you all can see it. Remember, this is Florida and the water here is not safe to swim. When you see gator warning, don't dare and be stupid to check.

Gators are just lurking nearby. When we drive on the road like NASA Causeway/Parkway, I always look for gators and sure enough, I found one. Actually, I found 4 on this day but, they are tiny. This is the biggest so; it's worth taking a picture.
