Come on in, the waters fine.

Just watch our for the gator lurking in the duck weed.
We saw this alligator in Texas at a state park. He was in what looked like an old watering trough
Scientific stuff
Alligator mississippiensis

The largest American alligator ever reported was supposedly 19.8 ft (6 m) long, although there are doubts about the claim.

Hatchlings are 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 centimeters) long with yellow and black stripes. Juveniles, which are on the menu for dozens of predators, including birds, raccoons, bobcats, and even other alligators, usually stay with their mothers for about two years.
