Written by Steve Gillman

Continued from page 1

March is a great time to get out inrepparttar woods in Florida, so I was poking around near a corner ofrepparttar 146868 lake, when I heardrepparttar 146869 splash. There were no fish that big, I knew, and we had already seen two small alligators sunning themselvesrepparttar 146870 day before. This one had to be a giant. Ana and I returnedrepparttar 146871 next morning, and again heardrepparttar 146872 splash. It was underrepparttar 146873 water before we could see it.

Inrepparttar 146874 coming days, we visitedrepparttar 146875 monster each morning oncerepparttar 146876 sun was high enough for him to come out and soak uprepparttar 146877 heat. We caught enough glimpses to know he was at least ten feet long. Kari and Lester made a "Crocodile Hunter" movie of us stalking it.

In time, it no longer panicked, but just slowly lowered itself intorepparttar 146878 water, as if getting ready to hunt us properly. We stopped trying to get so close to it. Our gang went to view alligators safely after that, fromrepparttar 146879 tour boat at Wakulla Springs.
