[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a wild Jacaré-do-papo-amarelo, a Brazilian species of Alligators. This alligator was released by somebody while still a little chick from wild some years ago in an urban park, the Barigui Park, in Curitiba, a 2 million inhabitants town where I live. The animal grew fast and today can be sometimes seen around the lake resting for a while. Untill today, nobody was injured by such a wild animal, but even though the park is plenty of food sources, you´d better watch out...

Nice POV, DOF well taken photo of this monster.


He does look quite a monster Fabiano. Good shot of him, especially on this angle. Nice and sahrp, and good coloours too. Very well composed, thank you...

I agree with Scott and Janice, this is a real monster ! I would no longer go out of my house if I knew there would be such an animal in my town ! But your photo is great, with good composition and POV, and also nice natural colors. Well done !

Wow what a huge beast. amazing things they are. Nice shot. He's got an eye on you.....


Hello Fabiano,
A warm welcome to TN.
What an interesting story of your alligator living in your town.
He looks friendly enough, but... he is wild, and we should always respect that.
The focus and exposure on your picture are excellent.
I like the profile and the composition. He seems to be smiling.
Thank you for sharing. : )

Hello Fabiano,
Great shot and very interesting story behind it.
I like the POV and framing a lot, great details too.
