Very detailed, and very scary.
I think they eyes look downright sinister. I know that's personifying animals but still....
I agree with Phil!
Thanks for commenting, Allan.
Great color, too!
It is interesting considering that gators look so grey from a distance.
Awesome closeup! These things are rightfully frightening.
Thanks, Glenn. Just eating machines. And anything that breathes is a potential source of food :eek:

Something just occurred to me as I looked at this image again. With an elongated pupil rather than circular like mammals/birds, I wonder what a gator's view of the world looks like. Surely that shaped pupil must cast a different size/shape of image onto the retina.
