Bet 'cha didn't know Colorado grew alligators too!  A few miles away from us live the Colorado 'gators.  There is a natural thermal hot spring and fish farm. The alligators eat the waste. It's now a tourist attraction.

The place has taken on adopting unwanted, undesirable 'pets'. So there is a fun selections of snakes, lizards, gators, crocs, birds, farm animals, etc for little boys to run around looking at. They also have the gator from the movie Happy Gilmore here, living out his retirement with a girlfriend.

Wyatt and I went with his buddies-in-crime and their mother Saturday. It was fun and Wy couldn't stop talking about the 'croca-gators' all weekend!

We also darn near had to adopt this mini-donkey. He was so gentle and FUZZY!  Wyatt fed him skittles (after I checked to see how gentle he would take food of course!), and then had the little guy following him all over like a dog.

I've been there before! I had to travel all the way from coastal SC, where Gators live in the wild, to the interior of CO, to hold a gator!
The pictures of Wyatt feeding the donkey are priceless!
