This is Casper, a nuisance alligator that now lives in a pond at Everglades Outpost in Homestead, Florida. Casper is not a tame alligator, he is wild but this is a controlled environment (clean water, an alligator handler on hand etc.). I captured this image but holding my breath and dropping to the bottom of the pond as Chris Gillette coaxed Casper to swim over me.
