Fred, my first thought concerning your headline of Wild Horses attacking a Gator was of the Boise State University football team stomping the University of Florida in Gainsville.  

There is nothing like a mother protecting her young!

Horse 1 Gater 0   Gater got the golf ball in the last video. Those wild horses mean business & I'm sure they get attacked getting water all the time. Colts could get dragged away also.

I'm not feeling sorry for Mr Gater.

When thinking of reasons to go to Florida my mind generally goes to babes on beaches long before gaters.  For that matter, I really do not ever care to come across one of those things out in the woods or anywhere else.

Nothing surprises me...I watched my 40lb dog take the head clean off a 5 ft. snake, with one bite.   Before Mike could clean it up, the mated snake came and laid on top of the dead snake.  Actually I felt bad.

My kids used to bring home snake eggs to hatch, so I learned that things that crawl are more afraid of you than you are of them.

Funny thing, most out of town buyers ask about tiny lizards getting into their house more than anything big.  We now have a gecko living in our bedroom and both of us have failed trying to catch it. Hope it makes it out.

There is some dangerous stuff lurking in those brambles.

It is a part of Florida rapidly disappearing because so many from New Jersey move in and want the gators moved out. "I don't want to watch my kids" is what they are explaining.

Nature shows no mercy. There is a lot of nature in Florida/
