Alligator Ride

This post is for my blog friend Deb over at Paper Turtle.  You can read her blogs about Rex, her pet turtle at http://paperturtle.blogspot.com/

What do you do if your a turtle and need to get to the other side of the pond?  Simple.  Catch a ride on the top of an alligator.

On a recent trip to Sea World in San Antonio, Texas I spotted this cute little turtle catch a ride on the shoulders of this huge ugly alligator.

It's amazing how some animals can get along and help each other out.   Something we humans should take note of.  

So how did the turtle get off the alligator?  The alligator went underwater which made the turtle have to swim the short distance to some rocks.  

We must have spent a good thirty minutes watching the alligators and turtles, feeding the fish and enjoying the peace of that moment.

Oh how cool is this!?!?! Thanks for posting this, Irene. I am smiling as I type this comment. I also love your observation about animals helping each other out, when it seems that us humans are less likely to do just that sometimes.

:o) Thanks for thinking of me and for posting this. I love it!

I love this post...as you say, PEOPLE should try getting along like this. :)

I can't wait to see your file cabinet all dressed up as a bedside table. I am looking high and low for a couple...so far, all I find are the tall ones. I'll keep looking 'cause I really like the look. What color will you use??

Such a sweet little video. Alligators scare me. It was nice to see them in a different light.
