  1. Ex-Network Geek says:

    Rule 7 RULES!

    At least, I’m assuming that’s a smaller version and not some other kind of reptile.

  2. I rulio iglesias? what did you want to say because iglesia in spanish is church.

  3. I’m king of the world!

  4. meacu1pa says:

    Rulio Iglesias? I can’t stop laughing! That was awesome.

    What rule is it when a larger thing is accompanied by the smaller version? My eyes have been opened to cuteness with, um, scales…which I didn’t think possible.


    Mea Culpa

  5. Croc surfing!

    Cute and a leeetle beeet scareh…

  6. I think she was going for a pun on “Julio Iglesias” the singer.

  7. I ♥ baby gators!!

  8. Peg of Tilling says:

    WHEEEEE! FASTER, MOM! FASTER! Faster! Are we there yet?

  9. The photo is adorable, but the caption is what made me laugh. A lot. Till I cried.

  10. StormCat says:

    Peg, you stole my comment!! LOL

    He looks like he’s having a blast doesn’t he? I bet he calls shotgun every time Mom mentions she’s going to the Croc store…

    Meanwhile, Mom’s saying “Junior, keep your feet inside and put on your seatbelt”…

  11. meg, your captioning skills are in fine form. i think i just had an aneurysm from laughing so hard.

  12. Angela W says:

    Baby gators (and crocs) are the cyutest! Espesh this little guy.

  13. hahah rulio iglesias. good one.

  14. Nice pair of boots and a matching change purse.

  15. I Love this Being from the Bayou…….it makes me smile…..

  16. book_monstercats says:

    You’d need big feets and a small amount of change, pyrit.

  17. Wow, it’s not easy to find cute pictures of aggilaters! Great caption, too.

  18. Suzanne says:

    My overwhelming phobia of crocs/alligators/lizards of all kinds aside…baby IS cute. Even looks like he’s smiling.

  19. yay, rule #7! bebeh’s anerable, and mama’s almost…pretty! look at her demurely lowered eyelid.

  20. fish eye no miko says:

    “I’m king of the world!”

  21. Lioness says:

    Yeeee-haw! Now that looks like fun!

  22. This photo made available to you courtesy of the
    New York City Department of Environmental Protection.

  23. Looks like the little guy stayed up late watching William Shattner on Conan O’Brien.
    Woooooo! I am Going Fast Mom!!! WOOOOO WOOOOO

  24. unapologetic gator hater here, but the li’l guy is cute all right.

  25. bebeh gators still have VERRRA sharp teeth; don’t be petting him on his leetle head

  26. O M G
    This is my new favorite post. I don’t know why, it just is. This obviously has no ‘snorgle factor’, it has no ‘baroo?’, no fuzzy ears, it doesn’t make me wanna cuddle and take a nap.. but even without all those things it’s just so damn hilariously cute.


  28. I love the look on the mom’s face- I have had that look many a time after a long road trip. It is usually, in my experience, the parents who are thinking, are we there yet?

  29. Roberta says:

    Waaayyyyy Cute ;0)

  30. someone who is saying this: says:

    rule 7??? OOOHHH NEVER MIND took me a while…

  31. How would you spell motor-boat noises?

  32. Look at em smile!!!!!!!!

  33. See, now I’m going to have to try all day to fit “I Rulio Iglesias” into one of my sentences. Darn this site.

  34. I never thought of alligators or crocs as cute, but this really is!

  35. tatiana says:

    omg “i rulio iglesias” is the best caption ever. love it.

  36. “I can’t believe we have to pull over for these weigh-in stations. I’ve been on a scale for the past 5 miles.”

  37. I SO agree with Golden. And to Meg, Peg, Theo, Pyrit & all the CO regulars I’ve come to know & luv – you guys make my day. a picture may be worth a thousand words – but in this case – the pictures wouldn’t be nearly as good as they are without the wit and wonderment of the mighty pen. rock on.

    [Have a YAY, PtPc! In your namelink… – Ed.]

  38. Suzanne says:

    Aubrey – *groan* But funny none the less.

  39. Big Croc is totally thinking “Nah, you enREEKay Iglesias, swamp brat…”

  40. I’m on the top of the world looking down on creation
    and the only explanation I can find,
    is the mother I found keeps me high off the ground,
    your big head puts me at the top of the world!

    Thank you. Thank you very much. I’ll be here all week. Try the wildebeast.

  41. Tina Rhea says:

    Man, I need a ride like that. In all this damn traffic.

  42. thedistractor says:

    To all the gators I’ve loved before
    Who travelled in and out my door
    I’m glad they came along
    I dedicate this song
    To all the gators I’ve loved before

  43. u guys crack me up every single day!!

  44. Future Pope?

  45. Tina R — you’re blogging IN TRAFFIC?!

  46. Bumper sticker: When life hands you gators, make Gatorade.

  47. RevWaldo says:


  48. DKN–Awesome. You crocked me up.

  49. he looks like a dog hangin’ his head out the window of the car to catch the breeze! faster mum!

  50. little gator says:

    little gators REWL!

  51. Lofs da babeh ‘diles – did you ever see the David Attenborough (may his name be praised and his offspring be as numerous as the stars of the sky and the sands of the desert) documentary where he showed the mama crocs transporting the babies in her mouth in a sort of pouch under her tongue, and they were making all sorts of meeping noises?

    David Attenborough is so wonderful that even itty-bitty kittins like watching him:

  52. That picture always makes me think: “Excelsior!”


    YOU are so funny!

  54. Shannon Johnson says:

    Ok that is something different.

  55. I keep on coming back to this picture because (a) it’s adorable (d’Oh) and (b) because it reminds me of something but I couldn’t put my finger on it.

    ’til now. please compare with this similarly pleased little one:

  56. hellloooooo der neighba…. crockys rule.

  57. “How doth the little crocodile
    Is picked up without fail,
    And given rides without denial
    Upon another’s scales!

    How cheerfully he seems to grin
    And greets the peeps’ applause,
    Wiggling his reptilian chin,
    And gliding without pause!”

  58. OMG… can’t… breathe…. LOL!!!

  59. WackMomma says:

    Heh. I have the postcard for this. The photo was taken in Brazos Ben State Park in Texas. I know my stuph.

  60. “I’m the KING OF THE WORLD!!!!”

  61. the baby dille does bear a striking resemblance to Leo, now that I think about it 😀

  62. Awwwww and LOL. He’s practically laughing with joy!

    And I agree with Tony James – David Attenborough is abso brilliant.

  63. acelightning says:

    *Is* that a baby ‘gator, or is the litte guy some other species of reptile? He looks sorta like a cayman to me. (Still a cute pic, though.)

  64. TJ – I always like a good docute-mentary.

  65. Really? I prefer fur-eign films.

  66. Hello, Dale. Nice to see you again.

    Anyway, I prefer to watch DVDs. And even then I only watch The Director’s Mutt…and of course the DVD must contain special creatures: intermews and things like that.

  67. Valerie says:

    Ok … WHERE can I get a higher res version of this so I can make it my desktop image??

  68. [Rolls over and submits].

  69. AuntieMame says:

    Dale has met the Queen of Puns and been vanquished.

    Valiant effort, tho. 😀

  70. hahahahhah wat a happy lil croc

  71. Rollin like a balleh….who, that lady? That’s not my momz, that’s my ride. Sup??

  72. acelightning – Caimans get big too 🙂 It’s a behbee

  73. Brak_Silverbone says:

    The baby is either making motorboat noises, or singing opera.

  74. “Laaaaaaaargo al factotum del a citta! Largo! La la la la la la la la la la!”
