    Road Sign

    Perhaps this is one you should be a bit cautious about following.

    I can't believe that hikers and bikers have not already removed such a stupid sign.

    Let the entitled motorist feed the wildlife.

    So Hikers are upsetting motorists as much as bikers.

    Are those old blown out tires or are those alligators? If it's the later, than the sign becomes even more freaky.

    I was think the same thing. Since I can't seem to find the tell tale snout and eyes in the pic my guess was truck tire shreds.

    Just to make things perfectly clear, those are Alligator mississippiensis commonly called alligators. Looking at the photo casually, I count at least 7 of them.

    I grew up in Florida. Those are definitely gators. You can see the rear legs on a couple of guys up close who are pointed towards the water.

    Those signs are for tourists.

    It's been suggested elsewhere that perhaps this image has been 'manipulated'.

    Beat me to it. Notice how clear and crisp the lettering is compared to the rest of the scene. You can't tell if they're alligators or car tires, but lookit that sign.

    Cute, but fake.

    btw: truckers refer to broken tires in the road as "gators" so if you ever get a CB radio and listen in and hear them call out the location of a gator in the road - move out of that lane
    cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting
