We went to an alligator farm outside Florida City.
We saw all kind of alligators, including baby alligators (they're disgusting.)
We went on an airboat ride through the Everglades which left us semi-deaf when it was over. There were all kinds of gators in the Glades, and it only occured to me when we were home what would have happened if the boat had capsized (a pig out for the gators.)
We saw the alligators being fed, the snake show, and the gator show.
The girl in the last two pictures is Desire, who works there and did all the shows. She's crazy. I asked her what in the hell she was doing working with all the creepy crawlies, and she said she's loved reptiles since she was a little girl, and had always wanted to work with them. She was only about 20, and I thought she was the coolest chick I'd ever seen.
Because I felt like such a wussy girl around her, I got up the nerve to hold a (gross) baby alligator (that's me puckering up) and I even overcame my horror of snakes to poke the big albino python!
