Yep, a real bonafide local celebrity. This guy lives on a local plantation that has swamp trails open to the public.

He was there first, so it’s his trail. ‘Walk around me please’.

On an August day this old asphalt gets warm and toasty. You can see he is sprawled out and going no where.

Every visitor here will ask ‘have you seen an Alligator’. I can just point over towards the asphalt and be fairly sure he (or a friend) is waiting for the ‘ohhs and ahhhs’

Fact; only  juvenile Alligators sleep there. The little ones are afraid and the big ones get chased away.
