That thing is HUGE! That thing could have eaten a 9 foot bigfoot with one chomp. Steve Irwin would have loved him! I wonder what it took to bring that big boy down. When I was a kid of 10 or 11, my mom and I went to our local park for a swim in their freshwater lake. A bunch of people were gathered around a nearby creek gawking at a 11 footer laying in the creek. This creek was only a stone's throw from the lake. A ranger was there to tell people the dangers of feeding these critters. The next day my mom was going to take me and a friend of mine swimming in that lake but plans changed. Later that day we found out that gator got into our swimming hole and ate some girl. I'll never forget that. That could have been one of us. And now you know the rest of the story!

It is alot bigger than any of the ones I've seen in the wild. Nothing gets the blood to flowing like, running up on a gator in the wild. Well, monsters have a similar, yet different effect. They'll both make you fill up your trousers, especially if you don't know they are there, then see them. lol.

Thst is bigger than the one that used to float around in our fishing area back down in the San Jacinto river. He was a bit longer than a 16 ft jon boat. Also, that might be bigger than the one they pulled out of the river at Logansport. Do you remember that one, Jim? They kept a picture hung up at the judges store.

That must have been in Oscar Scherer State Park, Nellie.
