Pond gators (what I call the local boys) are quite common around my neighborhood – but they are still gators, wild and unpredictable. I give these guys plenty of room and there’s usually a nice escape route available for me. It also helps to have some type of gator barrier (short seawalls work best) between you and your friend. DO NOT stand along the same shoreline of a small pond or swamp area with gators – they are super quick and can actually “climb” small obstacles.
