For those of you who have not been able to come out and see our "star attraction", here is our newest addition, Reggie. He is definitely on the brighter side as far as alligators go. I worked night shift Tuesday night and was wondering where one of our feral cats were (don't worry, this has a happy ending). So I went down to Reggies exhibit just to make sure the cat didn't end up on the blue plate special - I shone my flashlight everywhere in that pool and no Reggie. Oh well. I figure he was hiding under some reeds or more towards the back of his exhibit where he is hard to see at night. I went home feeling something just wasn't quite on the level. Next day, I hear he climbed out of his exhibit and was found the next morning near the Childrens Discovery Center. (yikes!) He alas was returned safely to his pool. I can't help thinking he was hiding in the bushes nearby laughing at me the night before. As I was leaving this afternoon, I stopped and took a photo - he actually swam up towards me and stopped - he is a ham. People complain that he is not as big as they thought he was (I think people watch too many monster movies) I joke that coming to see him is like going to see the Mona Lisa at the Louvre. A whole big crowd of people staring at a rather small object that doesn't move much.
