They say that you should never smile at a crocodile, but this one smiled at me, so what the heck avenue should I do?  If you go to the Everglades, you can get to meet crocs.  We saw one munching on a large Anhinga (bird.)

The little guy seemed harmless enough, although I held him/her only long enough to get this photo.

And, from Peter Pan:

“Never smile at a crocodile

No, you can’t get friendly with a crocodile

Don’t be taken in by his welcome grin

He’s imagining how well you’d fit within his skin

Never smile at a crocodile

Never tip your hat and stop to talk awhile

Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day

Clear the aisle but never smile at Mister Crocodile.”

OK, here’s a joke  (get ready for special instructions:)  An elephant is drinking in the river. A crocodile swims  over and bites off the elephant’s trunk.  The elephant looks down and  says (pinch your nose) , “Very funny, very funny.”

Riding around the Everglades in an air-boat driven by a local denizen, you can get close to a crocodile.  (I guess it could be an alligator…not sure)   I think the guides have a deal with the neighborhood crocs who secretly get pieces of meat to come near the boat.
