Takes a lot to scare somebody that grew up in a place that has the largest snake (Anaconda - I think is actually second largest) and the biggest spider in the World, the Goliath bird-eater tarantula (Venezuela)

I've got a family ranch in Anahuac, Alligator capitol of Texas, a whopping 40 minutes from downtown Houston that has no fewer than 1,000 alligators...its not news that alligators in this area.

They are scared of people for the most part so I don't really know what all the fuss is about. They are just doing everyone a favor and ridding the neighborhood of snakes and stray cats....when they get a dog - well thats crossing a line.

I remember alligators in Cleveland Lake behind Lakeview Elementary, guessing they don't live there anymore.
