Beaumont, Texas: Alligator Building

What appears to have once been a shed or quonset hut has been transformed into a 135-foot-long blocky gator advertising a nearby alligator farm.

I-10 W., Beaumont, TX
West of the city at I-10 exit 838. Exit the freeway, then take the ramp back onto I-10 westbound. The Gator is next to that ramp, on the north side, near the point where it reconnects to the freeway. Or, you could pay admission at Gator Country ($15) and see the gator close up.
