Construction makes this guy very difficult to get to right now, but the process gave us a heap of laughter. Right across the street from Jaguars stadium.

Mr. Alligator is still in very good shape. Had a basketball in his mouth -- not sure they meant for it to be there -- right across from the stadium.

The 22-foot-tall, 16-ton concrete gator once stood in front of Casper's Gatorland (1946-82), which was north of St. Augustine. He originally clutched a cigar in his left paw.
