Oh yea, well I think you've been breathing too much swamp gas! :-)

Croc expert AND judge of all parents ...... (*cough* swamp gas) :-)

All kidding (and cheap shots) aside, you know I have the greatest respect for you. I think we both see the same problem and just have different ideas on how to deal with it. My optimistic view is that a well informed general public can make appropriate decisions. However, I do agree with your point about legislation to control or help people make these right decisions. I think the state of Florida probably has the best (not perfect) system in place. Allowing people the freedom of keeping potentially dangerous animals as long as they prove that they have the knowledge, experience and facilities to do so.
