Would you rather…. Florida summer edition

When I left Nashville and arrived in Florida, I wasn’t sure how soon I’d see the prehistoric creature Florida is known for. Surprisingly, it took quite a while to see an alligator. But since then, I’ve seen a lot! I’ve also seen snakes, so recently I had a thought.

Would you rather encounter an alligator in a lake, a shark in the ocean, or a moccasin on land?

Note that you aren’t on a boat or in a car in those scenarios. I think sharks might have the more intimidating reputation, but I would choose a shark over the other two 99 times out of 100. Sure they can be deadly, but being drug under water by an alligator just seems so inconvenient. Being poisoned by a moccasin, well, who’s got time for that? With a shark bite, at least they would go away for periods of time giving me a chance to swim to safety.

Sorry if this question causes nightmares tonight. I guess you can take comfort knowing that I, also, have ruined my upcoming night’s sleep.

Thanks for swimming (or slithering?) by…
