As a Kid in Florida we could swim any where with out the Fear of Gators. In fact it was hard to even find a Gator. We hunted them for Gas money. A Gator hide sold for $ 6.00 a foot back in the 1960's and gas was 19.9 cents a gallon. One foot of Gator Hide was two tanks of Gasoline.

In 1972 or so (I am guessing the date) Gators were put on the Endangered Species list and today we are over loaded with them. I believe if More Gator Permits were issued we wouldn't have a problem. Gators Hides are now bring $ 40.00 to $ 50.00 a foot. BTW That is not one tank of Gasoline in todays prices.
