Re: Gators on the Fly!
Because of the climate, just about any pet disposed of alive in Florida can flourish. Even fish dumped in canals can grow to huge size. At one time, albino clarius ( walking catfish ) were a trafic hazzard. All the ciclids thrive in canals. Oscars, Jack Dempseys and other aquarium fish can grow bigger than bass in the same waters.
And then there is the introduced reptile problem. Various constrictors can grow to well over 20 feet.
I spent my weekends in the glades hunting and fishing for 20 years. The first lesson learned ? Watch where you step.
You can always tell a fisherman. You just can't tell him much.
