GATORS!

They have been showing up everywhere lately.

They've even come up as far north as Huntsville, AL.

Just a random gator crossing the road, nothing to see here. NOT!

I'm worried these giants are getting way too close for comfort.

We even have a gator hunting season here in Alabama now.

I had no idea what I was looking at.

I was shocked to find out this is a gator nest! Not just a gator nest, but a gator nest right here in Alabama.

Michael Spain said in his post

"This is an alligator nest, I thought I might share it with the group. This was taken at Alligator Alley, a home for nuisance alligators in Alabama, but they are allowed to be Gators here."

How terrifying? You have to know mama is never far away.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I want no part of the future gators in this nest. We have to start getting this gator population under control here in the great state of Alabama. I have no desire to fish alligators out of our pools, creeks, lakes, and where ever else.

Keep an eye out for these alligators' nests. They are usually near the bank and have a large pile of debris.
