More Gators

600 Gators in this Preserve. They eat about 50-80 pounds of ckn per year. Each. No kidding!! They don't come to the daily feedings unless they're hungry - they eat every few days or so. Funnily enough - those hands tossing ckn I bet look a LOT like the chicken to them.....I'd toss far. Those suckers can JUMP and they hissssssssss louder than any cat I've ever heard. It's like a cross between a reeeeeeeally mad big cat and a rattlesnake.

This is Gabby (I think). They have 3 Galapagos tortises there. She was right up by the fence so we could get pics. Very obliging!

please do not tell me that I flew all the way to the Galapagos Islands when I could have just gone to Myrtle Beach and seen a tortoise.

Nope, you had to do that for the wedding. :-) I'm sure yours were bigger. The really huge one was back in the shade so I couldn't get really good pics of her.
