    A friend of mine sent me this. It didn't get this big by eating poodles.

    The gator was found between Orlando and Titusville, near Anita and Charlie Rogers house.
    They could hear it bellowing at night and their neighbors had been telling them that they had seen a mammoth alligator in the waterway that runs behind their house, but they dismissed the stories as exaggerations.

    Friday they realized the stories were, if anything, understated when he spotted it crawling through his back yard.
    Florida Parks and Wildlife game wardens had to shoot the beast. Joe Goff, 6'5" tall, a game Warden with the Florida Parks and Wildlife Department, walks past a 23-foot, 1-inch alligator that he shot and killed.

    Wow. That is quite large. I, too, would like a new pair of boots.

    Is the gator a lot closer to the camera than the officer or something?

    Something looks quite wrong about the key places where the gator should "attach" to the background. I'd say it's forced perspective, or a photoshop. Crocs get that big, and bigger... but certain features also go with advanced age.

    Yeah, the shadows just don't look quite right on this one. None of the croc's shadow is visible, despite the high angle of all the other shadows. Plus there's a feathered seam around the croc, which shows up like a slight white glow - look at where it's head and back join the background. I think it's belly scales look wrong too; they're reflecting the color of the trees where it looks like they should be darker. Fun! It's just like those "What's wrong with this picture?" puzzles.
