Pet the Alligator (Camera Critters)

Well...never thought I'd hold an alligator!

This little charmer drew plenty of attention last week at the McClelland's Critters Petting Zoo downtown at the libary. The baby gator, which has no teeth yet, is sitting in my left hand while I focus the camera in my right hand. Other critters on tour were baby Bengal Tigers and a magnificent python. The zoo brought them all the way from Banks, Alabama.

Take a look at the rest of God's beautiful creatures at Camera Critters!

No teeth? So what are those sharp things hanging from his upper jaw?
~~~I wouldn't have been as brave as you.~~~

They are so cute when they are small. Don't know if I could hold one though. How brave of you.

Well, as long as he didn't have any teeth yet... otherwise I don't think I'd be holding one!

Lynette said...

Wow! What a photo! You're brave and talented, all at the same time.

He's really, really cute! But, I must admit, I'm not afraid of many critters at all, but gators and sharks are critters I AM afraid of... but THIS guy is SO cute, I'd probably make an exception ;-)
