    This beautiful gator is one of my all-time favorites! He’s definitely a boy (girls max out around 8 feet in NC). I’m guessing he’s in the neighborhood of 12-14 feet. His name is Mojo! He’s an old boy as you can tell if you look at his eyes. I believe he is blind in both eyes. I think he lost his eyesight by fighting with other gators. He’s also missing a few toes. I have hundreds of pictures of Mojo, but I have to admit, this is the best picture I’ve ever seen of him. He’s a very photogenic boy.
