Near bit by Caiman .Watch out!
This time of the year is know for snake seasons due to the birth of alot of snakes and such. Somebody frogot to tell me that it is also alligator season and to be more specific croccidle season too.
Last evening I was trying to retrieve a stuck lure in the over brush on the side of a small canal in a very remote area and I had the surprise of my life. Mr Caiman ( a smaller croc ) was waiting at the banks edge. He snapped at the wood board that I was standing on in the water. Luckly his target acquistion was pretty poor and he missed me by a 1ft or 2.
The whole thing happen in like 2secs or less and I never seen the damm thing laying in the water. I actually thought it was a piece of trash or garbage, caught up by the board. I'm use to seeing alligators and not 2-3ft long crocs that about as camo as they get.
btw: Those that don't know, the american gators are very worried of humans and the caiman a smaller sub species of the croc is not and like the Nile crocs are alittle bit more agressive and less submissive. They are only can grow 2-3ft (IIRC) max in length and normally attacks smaller gators and fish and smaller 2-4 legged birds/animals that feed at the water edge.
So keep you're eyes open. ;g
