They said on the show Finding Bigfoot that the Florida Skunk Ape lived in alligator dens. This may be video evidence of that claim. These prints are smaller then mine, and seem to have claw like toes, and go into a river full of gators. You can hear a gator grunt at the :34 mark. This is no joke.
You do not want to go into this river. You will not come out! Something seemed to be very comfortable with this environment. It is nasty and hot down there. Bugs will eat you alive. This is typical for this time of year on these jungle rivers.
This area was behind my primitive campsite along this river. Yes, it was hot. I was not digging it; I was just doing it. I was doing what was needed for this type of research.
