That was one of the signs to me as well. However, the first thing that tipped me off was when fishy said, "i got this email from a friend..."
hahaha. Yeah she sent it to me this morning. I saw the pic and thought, woah buddy, that's a big croc!

I don't know the difference between a croc and an alligator. I guess my science class never really got into that kind of thing. I know there is a difference, but am unsure of what it is.

And truthfully, I didn't even look at the vehicle or the people or the background. I just saw that BIG head and body. That's a lesson learned. Pay attention to detail.

I'm still waiting for someone to run into a nile croc here in Florida. It hasn't happened yet, but someone is either gonna find the remains or a live one eventually.

Hurricane Andrew obliterated an alligator farm/zoo that happened to have some nile crocs. After the clean up, they never did find all the crocs, or alligators, or other reptiles they had. They might have died, they could still be hiding. Knowing how many strange species are running around down here though, my money says we'll find um just after a few strange 'fishing' accidents some day.

Or a saltie...one wonders just how many privately-owned large crocs are in the south....as it is, the bayou and Florida canals already have thriving populations of Burmese pythons and water monitors.

Stay out the water in New Orleans.. This is amazing

Got this from my brother today! 8O

Now this is a Crocodile!

This crocodile was found in New Orleans swimming down the street. 21 FT long, 4,500 lbs, around 80 years old minimum. Specialists said that he was looking to eat humans because he was too old to catch animals. This crocodile was killed by the army last Sunday at 3:00 pm, currently he is in the freezer at the Azur hotel. The contents of it's stomach will be analyzed this Friday at 2:30pm.

Eewww...

Holy crap! That is one big croc. Too bad for him he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Although his presence could have been a horrible ending for some unlucky people.
