Default Remind me not to go to Texas

I got this in an email at work today. A Texas power and light crew found these wonderful surprises in some culverts they were using!



18'-2" Gator

and 87 rattlesnakes:

I call bs on the 18' alligator, copied from answers.com:


As it stands now, Alligator records are as follows:

* World's longest/largest alligator - 1890 - caught in Marsh Island, Louisiana - 19'-2" * (weight officially unknown, but estimations range between 2,000 lbs. to 2,300 lbs.) See: http://www.shannontech.com/ParkVisio...verglades.html (towards the bottom)

* Biggest gator recorded in Texas - 14' 4" inches 900 lbs.(estimated weight/not offical) (the gator you see was not the biggest.) (http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/publicat...w7000_0162.pdf)

* Biggest alligator caught in Alabama - 12 ft. 8" 675' lbs.(www.alafarmnews.com/1007archive/1007gators.htm)

* Longest Florida gator on record - 17' 5" (http://www.floridaadventuring.com/fl...alligator.html)

* Heaviest alligator ever on official record - 1043 lbs - 1989 (just outside of Gainsville Fla.) http://www.newser.com/archive-us-new...n-florida.html

* Reports of 1,032lb., 1,023 lbs., 1,007 lb. & 1,002 lb. Alligators have been confirmed and documented/recorded



Even if it was 18' 2"... its nothing Troy Langtree couldnt handle

I kid you not I saw an alligator in the delta down here that was a foot or 2 shorter than my boat and I was in an 18 ft. boat. His eyes were the size of softballs. It was insane!
