It's time for a Reality Check

Ya' just gotta love these, like the 1,000 lb wild Pig last year. When I see this, off to Snopes I Go for the Real Story, and this ain't the Real Story.

Amazing how folks put these things together and they then become "the truth". Even funnier when the News Media picks them up without checking. Fun photos, just not true.

Yes, the alleged FPL employee standing behind the gator looks like he was cut and pasted into the picture.

Thanks for debunking this.

Even though the snakes are Western Diamond backs that wouldn't be found in FL, that picture still gives me the shivers. Just NOT a big fan of snakes. :redface:
Per the Snopes link I posted above, these are identified as Desert Rattlesnakes by the California BLM. However, if you go to the referenced link itself, Here Be the Real Picture, while you can see that the culvert was actually in CA, it does not mention which type of snake.

Anyone who spends any time around alligators wouldn't be standing behind one unless his mouth AND tail were both tied off. Gators can break your ankles or legs with their tails, so there was definitely some Photoshop work done...or the gator was dead.

Now I know why I tolerate living up North.
YUP!!!!! :biggrin: Most dangerous thing around these parts for me are married men, bratty kids and barking neighbourhood dogs! I couldn't imagine living where there are poisonous/dangerous creatures living a few feet from your doorstep.... gators, snakes, spiders, cougars (OK, we have THOSE here but the feminine kind :wink:).
