Almost didn’t make it through the day, the giant gator at Gatorland almost got me. Luckily, I was able to crawl out of the mouth and make it to safety.
It wasn’t until I got down from the zipline that I was truly afraid. Our guide for the day took us in to meet Chester, the massive gator measuring at just under 14 feet, ahhh!! He hissed and growled as we walked closer. I would have turned around and ran for the door, but I was truly amazed by his size.
This just warmed me up for my gator wrestling experience, I’m getting good at this. The gator I wrestled was about half the size of Chester, so it was no big deal.
Gatorland is home to a variety of animals from snakes to birds to turtles, spiders and Florida panthers. I was brave enough to wrestle gators, but when it came to the snakes, not so much. I’m obviously a little crazy, I won’t go near birds, but put me in an enclosed area just a few feet from a gator and I’m great!
Who’s ready to go swimming?
