Deadliest Catch

My son and his friends went fishing one night and caught this baby alligator.  When he told me about it I thought he was kidding and then he showed me this photo....yikes!
They took pics and released the little monster cutie.:)

Oh My Goodness... What did they do with it???? Did they get a cage and keep it as a pet????? Did they name him????? I'm sure they were proud to catch him. Bet his Mama wasn't too happy though... The Mama Alligator that is!!!!! ha ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Aren't you glad he didn't come dragging it home and say, Mom, can I keep it?

Eva Ason said...

Yikes...glad to hear he released it and didn't bring it home...cool picture!

Jeez, if I saw one of those I don't think I'd be picking it up for a photo op!

Were they keeping an eye out behind themselves to make sure Mama wasn't around?

I think it's cute. But then I remember the show I was watching the other night on Animal Planet and yikes ..... that little guy could get really big.

Oi, first thing I thought of when I saw the photo was the urban legends of alligators in the sewers...

A bit of an oxymoron - exciting to catch and see a baby alligator, but scary at the same time! sandie

Your son is so adorable. The gator not so much. I can't believe they picked it up, but then boys will be boys. :)

Ouch, My eyes would have fallen out of their sockets, my heart would have done a dance in my chest and not to memtion what I would have done in my pants to see this in person and to know one of my kids caught it. He is brave!
