I bumped into an alligator in Florida. My uncle had a lil piece of **** wooden boat and he lived on a lake that linked to a bunch of other lakes through some man made water-intersection thing.. so everyone that lived in this area was pretty much on the water. Me and my cousin went out and at first I was shook cause I saw those big ass iguanas they got swimming around.. they were like 4 feet long. So we bump into what I thought was a log until I saw the scales.. I yelled and it floated away.. I'm assuming it was dead.
What was scarier was the fact I had jumped into the middle of the lake to get a fishing lure a few days before, that ****er or its brothers coulda ate me. And it was at like 8 feet long.. like 1 1/2 size the boat, idk **** about gators but I'm guessing that Iguanas don't get that big and they don't have scales.. atleast my pet ones didn't.
Ontopic: That's a big ass stingray, I'd panic if I was in that kayak situation.
