Yup, that’s a real alligator, from the real state of Florida. Which is to say, very very far away from me and I’m all right with that. I understand that it’s apparently an amiable sort of alligator, seeing as it walked right past a bunch of photographers who seem to have a classic GURPS Horror-style Delusion about how having a camera makes them invulnerable – but what if the alligator changes its mind?
