Sometimes Being a Big Mouth Can Be A Good Thing
Normally if you hear someone being referred to as a ‘big mouth’, it’s meant as a criticism in a negative manner. But in alligator world, being a big mouth can be a good thing because nobody ever wants to mess with or bother the big mouth. Big Bubba here from this past weekend was nominated head gator in charge of the marsh pond largely due to his having the most impressive display of the evening!
Yes, I would absolutely not dare to mess with this guy! Hope you don’t get too close to him….
Always a good idea to give these guys a little space, especially when they are acting a bit feisty. 🙂
I’d nominate him for Big Mouth of the Swamp.. 😉
He would win that election as there was only a couple smaller guys out at the same time. 🙂
No argument from me. He capable of some serious chompin’. Is that a display, a yawn or a cry for love? 🙂
No argument from me either. 🙂 I think he may have been thermoregulating his body temp.
If I’ve been called a big mouth before, do I assume I look like Bubba?! Clearly it’s understood why he’s voted as the big gator in charge!
Wait. No. You? A big mouth?! Not possible!
Only Bubba’s kids look like Bubba, and yes he was head gator in charge for one night anyway. 🙂
Open up and say…..Ahhhh! That gator could make some dentist very happy. 😉
I have tried to get a local dentist to stop by and do some clinic work on these guys but so far no bites, uh, I mean takers. 🙂
A very nice “snap”? 😱
It’s the downward part of the snap you want to be careful of. 🙂
A really impressive boss of the pond! ▲
I was impressed. His smaller friends were impressed. so that settles it, he is boss of the pond! 🙂
Yeah me too. When I get in a certain mood I’m tempted to add a word balloon with a comment by the gator in a pic like this but that’s just being silly right? 🙂
With that big mouth, I wouldn’t criticize bubba. I hope you were shooting with a very long lens…I wouldn’t want to get close to him.
I won’t criticize him at all, Bubba is very sensitive and we would not want hurt feelings would we?! 🙂
And if you want to see close, check my post for later today.
Very impressive and a great capture Phil.
Thanks much Jan I appreciate it.
Wowwwwwwwww che boccaaaaaaaa !!!
Grazie mille Pat! 😀
I’ll stay away from the big mouth, thank you.
