    Probably not, but Diane wanted to take pictures of some cranes and ducks so she made him stop. He dropped the granola bar he was eating when he bolted for the car and I figure the gator got a health snack out the deal

    Were they on Alligator Alley (75 between Miami and Naples). That is a great place to see incredible birds and thousands of 'gators!

    I'm not sure, I know they stopped on teh way up to Disney and that they took the turnpike, but that's all I know for sure.

    Ah. Nope. But they were running along the eastern edge of the 'glades so they saw some nice wildlife. And then the 'gator of course.

    we did alligator alley on our first trip to florida in 1997. We stopped a couple of times and watched a man fishing - he had gators all around him in the water- soon as i saw them i ran back to the car lol

    Isn't that area just chock full of 'gators? I always get spooked driving through there. Can't imagine having something go wrong and being run off the road into one of those "ditches" (that are really more like small canals)!

    What amazes me is that there are actually ducks on the water in them! I'd think none would survive.

    I do love the birds through there though. Incredible.
