    Looks like that thing will be Paris Hilton's next aquisition when Armani turns it into an oversized handbag for her little pooch.

    That is a monster size croc! It is disrespectful too. Do all crocs show no fear of humans? I live in gator country. I have them in my back yard sometimes. They are respectful now and flee from humans. Back in 2005 when I bought this place there were a couple that would come toward people. They had been fed by humans. I had to rope them and handle them a bit before releasing them back into the creek. That made them more respectful. We have had some maulings by gators in the area. One must respect an animal that can take off an arm or leg like you or I would bite a pretzel.

    Looked at the pics, all I see is boots and belts and maybe a nice custom holster.

    You are right about the leather. When the first Europeans came to gator country They were amazied by all the fine aligator skin products that the native americans were using. It was because other types of leather don't stand up well to the damp climate and getting wet. Now everyone knows about the beauty and the water resistant qualitiy of aligator hide. They are very tastey also, yum.

    T T, that is a crocodile. Alligators are native to the Americas, the rest of the world has crocodiles. Heck, there are even crocodiles in the Sahara.

    Do crocs and gators both make good handbags and boots?

    Yes but gators make better pets and taste better when they are younger

    Some consider the hide of these animals to be the best of leather. It's very tough and resistant to water damage. Leather made from land mamals like cows, pigs, horses, sheep ect. tends to be damaged by water rather easily.

    If God did not intend us to eat the animals, why did he make them out of meat?

    Hey Ashley,

    Let me know when you want to go hunting a "100% genuine Paris Hilton" and we'll take her to Armani and make a prize backpack out of her.

    Gees, this thread is really giving good humor.

    "she's a nocturnal animal so we have to think tactically that way"

    Now to blend in with Paris Hiltons environment, i'm going to need a serious education in vainness and gratuitous promotion of my finer features.
    Paris will surley attach herself to me like a limpet to a barge hull.
