    Thumbs up Tourist tips about Floridas Aligators

    Subject: Dept of Fish and Wildlife alert!

    The Florida Department of Fish and Wildlife is advising hikers,hunters, fishermen, golfers and tourist in general to take extra precautions and keep alert for alligators while in : Alachua,
    Marion , Lake, Collier, Lee, Seminole, Osceola, Polk, Brevard, Putnam and Orange counties.

    They advise people to wear noise-producing devices such as little bells on their shoes or clothing to alert but not startle the alligators unexpectedly.They also advise the carrying of pepper
    spray in case of an encounter with an alligator.

    It is also a good idea to watch for fresh signs of alligator activity. People should learn to recognize the difference between small young alligator and large adult alligator poop.

    Young alligator poops are smaller and contain fish bones and possibly bird feathers. Adult alligator poops have little bells in them and smell like pepper spray.

    Default Eagles

    At one time there was speculation that eagles mated by flying to a high altitude and committing the act during free fall.

    I'm not sure if this is true or not. If it is, I'm thinking they pretty much skip the foreplay...

    You've all got to check out this book...

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1592...05#reader-link

    I bought it a few month's back, and it is hysterical. Left it at the station for some laughs, and it disappeared. Very educational stuff!

    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.
