LadyWolfdreams.com | Weekly Forecast: 9/24 to 9/30 ~ This message of reclaiming personal power continues into the middle of the week as we are joined by contrary Alligator who warns, "Look for the hidden meaning behind everything. If someone offers you something that seems too good to be true, it probably is. If someone seems pushy or desperate to get you to do something, ask yourself 'why?' Don't just blindly follow along without asking questions."
Otter preying on alligator in Florida's Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge. Photo taken by Geoff Walsh from refuge entrance road in 2011. According to a caption posted with the photos, the otter eventually pulled the juvenile gator up onto a bank and began chomping on it "as evidenced by crunching noises." Despite their cute and fluffy appearance, otters are often the apex predator in many freshwater habitats, meaning they have no natural predators of their own.
With its piercing blue eyes and pale skin this Alligator is one of only 12 white alligators in the world. The 500lb, 22-year-old male alligator, Bouya Blan, whose name means white fog, is kept at the Gatorland theme park in Florida. He is one of four giant leucistic alligators kept at the park. "These are not albino animals, they are what we call leucistic, which means they have a little bit of pigmentation around the mouth and a little touch on the tail and they have piercing blue eyes."
