Gar Al Dente

The American Alligator is a master of the ambush!

They wait for hours until the quarry is in reach and then move like a major mousetrap gone wild!!

The gator is a predictable predator that kills or captures all of its game within 6-10 feet from the water's edge - or in the water.

Want to be safe from gators?? Don't get stupid or get within 6-10 feet from the water's edge.

Corollary: See I know it's hard to believe but.... for really stupid
