The People Love Me
This past week has been nice, a lot nicer than I expected. As I mentioned in my last post I thought that I had been seen, I was right. Since then small crowds have been coming out to see me. I been careful of who I let get a glimpse, nobody with cameras (even cell phone cameras) and nobody in uniform. People having been bringing me food a lot of bread, popcorn, and chips but I'm trying to stay of the junk food. I don't know why people think alligators would like popcorn, don't they know that I am a viscious carniverous creature. I've still been going after ducks, frogs, and grebes. Lately, I found that I also like carne asada burritos. They remind me of a favorite meal my owner used to give me growing up.

They know I'm here
I've been trying to lay low since I got here, I do most of my activities at night. During the day I've been hiding in the plants or holding my breath (Up to 3 hours) when people come around. I think somebody saw me yesterday because today there are more people here than usual. Hopefully they will all leave soon, I know I will never be accepted as an urban reptile.

Eating By Yourself
It's been a tough couple of days adjusting to living on my own in the wild. The thing that is the hardest is finding my own food. Luckily for me this lake is dirty and there is a lot of plant life that allows me to hide while hunting. I've been eating a lot of frogs and ducks, to me they both taste like chicken, the ducks are kind of oily though.

I've been real lonely and I miss my owner and my friends. I wish that someone could just come down here and talk to me.

Welcome to Machado Lake
Today was very hard day for me, the problem was that I was struggling, suffering from an internal conflict. My owner who I was very attached too decided to release me into Machado Lake in Harbor City, CA. To most gators this would seem ideal but to me it is not. I had grown accustomed to my small plastic pool in a modest suburban backyard. I liked not having to hunt for my food. My life was perfect before all this. I guess I understand why my owner had to let me go. I was just getting to big and too expensive for him to handle. Maybe he thought I would happier here with all of the frogs and fish. I bet he didn't know how filthy this lake was. I'm going to try and get some sleep, it's been a rough day.
