Just stop and take a picture with this dude and his gator buddy... because it is AWESOME! Also, you know your kids will love telling stories to their therapist about how their dad was a dork.

Gator vs. Indian.

Gator Wrestler Statue

The entrance to the Miccosukee Indian Village features a large statue of a Miccosukee man preparing to wrestle an alligator. The alligator has an open mouth full of sharp teeth, ready to bite if the man isn't careful. The village also features Miccosukee food, airboat rides, demonstrations about their culture -- and of course alligator wrestling shows!
