Alligator Spotted Once Again in Phoenix...

Alligator Spotted Once Again in Phoenix...

 

Can this be true you ask?  Alligators in Phoenix? Well, there are real alligators at the Phoenix Zoo! But the only other 'alligator' I know of is the one  we saw at the North Phoenix Preserve while out hiking

 

Read the Original Gator Story! This 'gator' was getting a LOT of attention from the hikers, especially the kids. And naturally I had to share the location of the 'gator' with all I met on the trails!  Have I told you about the baby dinosaur caves at the Preserve? Not yet?  I will!!

P.S.  I'd be happy to show your kids the baby dinosaur caves once it cools down enough to go hiking!!!!

We were in Columbus Georgia one time and we laughed about the sign $200 fine for feeding the alligators - it kept the kids in line!!

Anna- I had to do a double-take when I read your title.  And don't let Barbara Todaro see this!

Tried  to read your alligator post and it told me I lost my keys -- bet it would make a great handbag

Part of my "not sooo much love" for Florida lies in the gators...

Hello Anna - if anyone wants to find an alligator in Phoenix, I am sure you're the one to help them.  And Phoenix area real estate too.  Of course.

Good morning Anna. Alligators in Arizona? Why not! Just had a big to do about one here in Chicago. Enjoy your day.

HiAnna... I'm happy to live where I don't have to deal with creatures like alligators! 

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage ) 3 months ago

One nice thing about living where it is COLD  is that we don't have to worry about things like alligators, poisonous bugs, etc. Now and then someone is attacked by a mountain lion, moose, or bear but generally if you stay out of their way they stay out of your way.

Meanwhile - you can add your Arizona Alligator to things to show the kids.

That "other alligator" looks very real, Anna.  If I came across it on a hike, it would probably stop my heart for a moment!

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) 3 months ago

Anna the only alligators I want to be close to are those that look like shoes, hand bags, and wallets ...... LOL

HI June Piper-Brandon kind of scary thinking about kids or adults feeding aligators.  I'd for sure be posting warning signs all over the place and make it a bigger fine.

LOL Kathy Streib I'll be sure to not let Barbara Todaro get near that real alligator. I'm sure she can handle the desert 'alligator' in fact I know she'd love hiking that path. So pretty!  Not know....way to hot.  And I bet the alligator has lost it's 'look' by now in all the heat. Darn!

Hey Sally K. & David L. Hanson that thought has crossed my mind as well.  We think about buying a beach home every once in a while but I think we're more focused on NC where grandkids live.

HAHA Michael Jacobs it helps to have a wild sense of imagination while out hiking in the preserve. Lots of cool stories.....and lots of visitors with little kids, scared of hiking in the desert need encouragment and a sense of adventure. They get over being scared real fast, especially looking for baby dinosaur caves! I'm seen many a smile over the years from kids - and their parents or grandparents!!  Fun!! All in my job!!

Posted by Anna Banana Kruchten - Phoenix Homes Sales, 603-380-4886 (Phoenix Property Shoppe) 3 months ago

Seriously Wayne Martin you guys had an alligator sighting. Did it escape from a zoo or maybe a 'pet'. Who has pet alligators? Is that allowed? Oh wait, I remember some guy last year or so in FL I think had a 'support' alligator. Creepy!

Posted by Anna Banana Kruchten - Phoenix Homes Sales, 603-380-4886 (Phoenix Property Shoppe) 3 months ago

Nina Hollander we're on the same page with that thought!!

Posted by Anna Banana Kruchten - Phoenix Homes Sales, 603-380-4886 (Phoenix Property Shoppe) 3 months ago

Hi Marte Cliff well you do have your share of wild animals to consider, for sure. And now AZ doesn't have real alligators except at the zoo!! Makes for great stories for kids - which I love to share!

Posted by Anna Banana Kruchten - Phoenix Homes Sales, 603-380-4886 (Phoenix Property Shoppe) 3 months ago

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat when I first found it really did look so much like an aligator so I just had to make up that story. Too good to pass on that fun!

Posted by Anna Banana Kruchten - Phoenix Homes Sales, 603-380-4886 (Phoenix Property Shoppe) 3 months ago

LOL George Souto you cracked me up with your version of 'acceptable' alligator stuff.  Love it!

Hannah Williams thank you again for alerting me about the link not working! I so appreciate that and will always return the favor to you and everyone!

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 - Alligators are on the prowl! I recently heard about the alligator in Humbolt Park in IL I saw that Wayne Martin mentioned it too. My grandparents lived over there and I always thought the word "Lagoon" was odd for that park. How crazy that you had one that looked like one in the Deserts of Phoenix! Cute! You crack me up with your wild imagination! You'd make a great storyteller at a campsite telling stories to kids by the campfire! 

I remember stopping somewhere at a Campsite - I think it was in Flagstaff and at that time, I thought, I should remember this place when it's time to retire to be one of those tour people in the National Parks. 

Have a wonderful day and keep the inspirations flowing! I like when it flows my way!

P.S. Did you read one of Beth Atalay recent posts or maybe it was on FB? There was an alligator in her yard in FL! She was glad Buddy wasn't outside. Me too!

Posted by Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Selling Homes Changing Lives (DFW FINE PROPERTIES) 3 months ago

Good morning Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 - that must be a sight.  We see more than our share in Florida.

Ha, this is a cute one Anna, and I recall hearing about this local gator before in a post. Alligators are one of those creatures that I give wide berth. They are not to be trusted...much like brown bears.

Hey Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP I did see that Wayne Martin talked about the alligator sighting in Chicaco. Who knew!!! Crazy!!  And yes, there are lots of parks to 'volunteer' at during the summer months espeically in my neck of the woods. That would be interesting to see what the process is to get going on that....

 

And no I didn't see Beth Atalay as I am no longer on FB.

Posted by Anna Banana Kruchten - Phoenix Homes Sales, 603-380-4886 (Phoenix Property Shoppe) 3 months ago

Hi Grant Schneider yes you folks in FL get more than your share of gators. Not my fav!!

Posted by Anna Banana Kruchten - Phoenix Homes Sales, 603-380-4886 (Phoenix Property Shoppe) 3 months ago

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD it's been a lot of fun telling this story and others!  I do it for the SMILES on both the kids and parents faces! I used to do a lot of hiking in CO, MT etc and we always steered clear of bears and took great precautions as well.

I just hope people in Florida don’t mistake Alligators for cactus Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886

I am glad we do not have gators here in WV.  Enjoyed reading this post.

Cute picture of the alligator... I think I've seen it around before.  Be careful what you wish for...

Posted by Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089, Maui Real Estate sales and lifestyle info (Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers) 3 months ago

All I can say is I prefer the gator that is made from a bent cactus over the other kind!

Oh MY! That looks like a big one to me! Thankfully we don't see them here in Charlotte but, I did see one when I was in Hilton Head recently, Anna. I think their unpredictability is what scares me to death about them!
