Swimming With Pete the Alligator
Occurred in 2012 / Florida Everglades, USA
Info from Licensor: "We were just trying to cool off on a hot day while we had Pete on watch for any other Gators that might try coming into our area. He would chase any other Gators away aggressively. We had a mutual respect with Pete and we're at ease in the water with him. We would get out of the water if he went under just to be safe but he never showed ANY aggression towards us.I have never felt as comfortable swimming in those waters as I had while I knew he was on watch!"
