Bull Gator Statue

Field review by the editors.

Gainesville, Florida

Unveiled in 2008, the Bull Gator was meant to celebrate the University of Florida Gators football team of 2006, which won the national championship that year. But the gator has since been adopted as a popular photo op by University of Florida students (especially in their graduation caps and gowns) as well as anyone who wants to safely pose straddling a gator, or pretending to hold open the jaws of a gator, or sticking an arm or head inside a gator's toothy mouth.
