Waking up in the morning. In the late. 1980’s I was suprized to see this big 12 foot Alligator lounging on the canal bank across from my campsite after leveling the vegetation behind him. I named him "Bulldozer". Location was not far from Rattlesnake, Florida. Gators are always on the lookout for their next meal so I decided I did not wish to become Dozer’s dinner and moved on.
