    Hey this is at the Naples FL zoo

    Also, alligator not crocodile, and the pond does in fact contain that big old boy.

      Interesting fact, there are saltwater crocodiles in southern Florida, and the keys. It’s, I believe, the only place in the world that has crocodiles, alligators, and Amazon caiman.

          I can confirm this dude’s statement about caimans. I used to hang out in their neck of the woods a looong time ago when I was a teenager. A few minutes away from Key Biscayne is a little tract of federal land where an old squatter named Jimbo built himself a little shanty town in a cove. He’d sell smoked fish and if you left cash on a counter, you could grab canned beer from a nearby cooler. My friend and I would see all kinds of wildlife in the nearby trails and water, usually gators, deer, and manatees. A few times we did see caimans, and they were always the most hostile fuckers. We called them Meth Gators.

        Salties in southern Florida? Pretty sure you are mistaken. I think the only croc in the US is the American Crocodile.
