Swim, ski, tube in that lake all the time. The kids love it. Know there are gators in there, but they've never bothered us!

Really?! I know it's very passé, but as the whole world knows, there's gators everywhere here, although they're a mascot more or less, they're like tourists, nothing special.

Did you notice he is missing a back foot?

Not uncommon, gators tend to get into scraps with other gators and chances are it was bit off.
