I saw this on Snopes.com a week or so ago, thought I'd post it up since this supposedly took place near here.
This is a real photo of a gator killed in Bay City, TX.
Lot of South Texas Nuc Plant folk live in this area. Look at the size of that head!
Here is another reason to stay out of the ditches and bayous.
This was found at Bar X, which is between Angleton and West Columbia, near a house. How would you like to meet this fella in the dark? Never let it be said that we don't grown them big in Texas.

Snopes said about this photo:
As far as we know the photograph displayed above is genuine and corresponds to the following account of an alligator killed by game wardens near West Columbia, Texas.
We're still listing this photograph as "undetermined" while we attempt to verify some of the details (particularly the size of the alligator). In any case, this image is another example of how positioning can exaggerate the apparent size of objects in photographs. The alligator is in the foreground of the picture, with its head turned towards the camera, while a game warden strolls in the background, making the reptile (particularly its head) seem proportionally larger than it really is.
Guess I shouldn't complain about the occasional grass snake I see near our place.
