Friendly Fill-Ins

This is a fun meme co-hosted by 15 and Meowing and McGuffy’s Reader. Be sure to visit and join in the fun!


Here are the fill-ins:

1. Before you __________, you need to ________________.
2. After _______________.
3. Winter ______________.
4. Spring ______________.


Here are my responses:

Before you go swimming in this part of Texas, you need to check for alligator eyeballs peeking out of the water and snakes slither-swimming.

After you do that, proceed with caution.

Winter doesn’t find them hibernating, but it sometimes makes them dormant when it gets cold.

Spring brings with it courtship and love of the alligator variety. Did you know that some mama ‘gators can lay up to 90 eggs in one season?!?!?! I think it is cool that they take care of their babies until they are two or three years old. They don’t just lay the eggs and forget them like some other reptiles, such as snakes, do.

I found this information on the Smithsonian’s National Zoo web page titled American alligator. They have lots of cool information there. Check it out!

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

    Thank you for participating in the fill-ins. I like your alligator theme 🙂 If I had to check for alligators, I would not go in the water. Yikes! Have a nice weekend!

    • Thank you, Ellen. 😊 I’ve walked by water since we’ve moved here, but I have yet to go swimming. It isn’t really something I enjoy anymore anyway. There is a state park about 30 or so miles from here with thousands of alligators in residence. We haven’t been in years.

      Have a blessed weekend!
