Recently got another alligator for the pond. I’m sorry, but even with those bright, white teeth.......just not intimidating enough. A little paint really makes him POP! Now, whether he’s any more intimidating to the GBH’s, well, who can say — but I think he looks pretty mean! Very JURASSIC PARK!

(I have 2 older, different style & material gators that were just refurbished, but I like how this guy floats — the older ones have gotten waterlogged)

Before on top. After on bottom.

Huuum, well as a nurse I must say that a gator with good dental hygiene is less intimidating. Much less risk of infection from those pearly whites. He is very photogenic I will give you that.

Looks great!

If herons are at all smart as egrets....it won't work.

Years ago I lived in the sticks, and had a 500 gallon natural pond. One particular egret was always trying to get close enough to steal some fish.

I had buried an "invisible fence" wire to keep my dog on the property. That egret figured out where that border was, and would just sit on the outside, staring at my pond,while my dog was a few feet away, barking and snarling.
It was a sight to see. Very very smart birds.
