Mrs Ali G

By Angi_Wallace    
Meet Ali G my partners Mississippi Alligator, she is around 3 years old now and aproximately 4 ft long.
Here she is happily sitting resting on my partners arm, I shoved a purple piece of plastic behind them to take this shot asa I thought it might make her stand out nicely - maybe it is too distracting. She should grow up to around 9-10 ft long when adult. She has a specially designed cage with a lovely large pool to swim in. She eats mainly rodents (defrosted) at present but is also quite partial to a bag of large locusts every now and then.
We have a DWA licence, which is a requirement in the UK to keep this species. my partner was trained in Portugal to handle crocodilians. If anyone would like any more info feel free to ask.

This shot should go far. Superb detail and light and the bg is not distracting at all. It is PERFECT.

Are you sure you're supposed to make eye contact with him? Super detail and the background colour sets him off well......and your partner is a braver person than me!!
