  2. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

  3. Was he also giving it a hand job? (see yesterday's dolphin story at http://www.towleroad.com/2014/06/news-9.html)

  5. Just like the guy who tried to live with bears.. this will not end well.

  6. This problem will solve itself once those alligators get a little bigger.

  7. Gators like marshmallows?

  8. Yes, they do. I've seen swamp tour guides actually call gators to feed them marshmallows, but from the boat, not the water. Still is probably something you shouldn't do.

  9. While this is probably the dumbest thing I've ever seen, he's obviously some sort of alligator whisperer. How they don't rip his face off and know they have to bite the marshmallow with a small nip from his mouth and not eat his head is kind of remarkable. Either he's a supreme idiot or he just knows something we don't. But he never looks like he's in any danger and they seem to feel totally at ease with him. If it were dolphins we'd all be applauding.

  10. Governor Skink from the Carl Hiaasen novels is real! (OK, those are Florida, not Louisiana, but same environment).
