Billie Swamp Safari

Go for the airboat ride, stay for the alligator wrestling. I did not know that if you turned an alligator on its back it would pass out.

That, by the way, is the secret to alligator wrestling -- that and not letting those jaws bite you. An alligator bites with a crushing 2,196 pounds of force. To put that into perspective: a lion bites with about 940 pounds of force, a shark with 330 pounds, a dog with 125 pounds, and humans with 170 pounds of force.
