Gator Update (Territorial Imperative Edition)

Golf-course tussle costs one alligator a leg | | Star-News | Wilmington, NC: "A young male alligator on Bald Head Island decided to go wandering last month, trading the comfort of the freshwater lagoon near the island golf course’s ninth hole, where the roughly 5-foot-long gator had been observed all summer, for a pond down by the seventh hole.

But instead of landing a birdie or eagle, he scored a bogie when he became food for a bigger male that had already staked the watering hole as his territory.

The result was a four-legged gator going into the pond, and a three-legged one coming out."
