    I'm from South Carolina too & read quite well, so right back at you.

    As for the signs, I've been living on the lake for 16 yrs & don't think I've ever seen one warning about 'gators. Avoiding them is pretty much common sense, not un-like dealing w/ smart-ass northerners:

    1. Recognize they exist & have incredibly small brains suitable only for wandering aimlessly about in the search for food.

    2. Give a wide berth, ignore them & they'll go away.

    3. Feed one & it soon becomes a nuisance.

    It's cool, no offense taken as was none intended by my smart-ass reply. I know we've got some ignorant bastages down here.

    He was actually snorkelling at an area I've been to many times. It's a real flat shallow area where we would just drop anchor & jump out 'cause the water isn't real deep & you can just float around on a life jacket, drink beer & hang out. The lake is pretty low right now though due to drought which leaves the marsh dry forcing the gators out to open water for food.

    Dude came up against a gator with a 12/550 statsheet and all he lost was an arm?

    Lazy effort I'd say! Word is when the gator got to heaven Steve Irwin wouldn't even make eye contact!

    And Glenn's right I guess.If a 12 ft. 550 lb. gator attacks you,You're lucky to just lose an arm..

    No doubt he was lucky. I learned to ski on the river that feeds this lake(as did most people around here since the water is always like glass). Many times I've jumped in & while putting on my ski see 'em sunning on the river bank. There's a wild life refuge a mile or so from my house that borders the lake & in early spring you can walk & be 30 ft from a freakin' monster. No fences or anything, just a shallow canal. I mean some of these things are so big they don't even look real. The smaller ones hit the canal & haul-ass but the big ones just lay there. It freaked my beak the first time I did it but then I realized how cool it was to be that close to something that wild.

    No, because the alligator didn't intrude on their homes.
