A huge alligator clamped down on one of the rear legs of this very big soft shell turtle at Shark Valley in the Everglades National Park on February 27, 2011. Believe it or not, after having his leg in the vise that is a gator's mouth for about 15 minutes, the turtle got away, although he doesn't look very confident at this moment. Thirty people cheered and told the gator to go eat a fish instead! I hope your day went better than the gator's and even better than the turtle's.
