How brave are you?
I don't care if I have a hard shell on my back, there are still some things I just won't share a log with. Alligators are at the top of that list.
I'm sure the alligator on the right just ate. In fact, he is probably baking his meal -- since they are cold blooded they love to climb on rocks and logs and other sun-baked places to heat up the meal in their stomach. Nonetheless, I think I would be at least the 4th or 5th turtle from him. That way, all I would have to do is out-swim the other turtles (of whom I would have a head start) and not have to worry about out-swimming the gator.
The scene is the bayou in Audubon Park, in New Orleans
