^yeah, that's what an AP story said also. There were just 'no swimming' signs posted. nothing about 'gators.

and tbh, it doesn't look like your typical 'gator hole:

I thought about that as well. Until someone lives in Florida and spends some time around the water then the whole idea of gators attacking people probably seems pretty far fetched. And to be clear it is very rare for humans to be attacked, pet dogs are another story. The worst that has ever happened to me is getting hissed at a few times on the golf course.

Though in all fairness giant flying cockroaches aka palmetto bugs freak me the fuck out, especially since they seem to enjoy flying right at your face.

Yeah, no signs warning about gators and they're fucked.

It's no different than having to put all those warning stickers on every last damn product sold in the US.
Stuff like warnings to not using a hair drier in the shower.
Because some dumb-shit, somewhere did just that got electrocuted and the family sued saying there were no warnings on the product not to do that.

He's lucky it was a small shark.
Still looks like it hurts like hell and may have even caused permanent nerve or muscle damage.

Came across this giant frog/toad the other night. Trust me, it looked much bigger in person. It was as big as my hand and probably weighed 2-3lbs. Oh, and I was told they are highly poisonous, they will kill a dog if licked/bitten.......only in Floriduh.

Technically they are cane toads (bufo). And unless your dog is really dumb and eats he toad, most dogs will nope it out of there once they get a small taste of their toxins.
