Happy Hobo Alligator

The Happy Hobo Alligator has moved from Everglades City to Ochopee. I only saw the "Do Not Climb" on Gator sign after Taffy the Travel Cat stood on it for a picture.

Happy Hobo Alligator

A souvenir shop in Everglades City displays an alligator statue out front -- but unlike most gator statues (which depict fierce-looking creatures) this alligator appears to be a happy traveling hobo, smiling and waving.
