That is a juvenile gator.

It's not a juvenile gator. Notice the feet aren't webbed. And the toes are longer for climbing. I was going to say Savannah Monitor before the other poster said Tegu.

Yep, Tegu. My friend lives pretty close to Avalon (as the crow flies) and had one in their yard back in July. May be the same one.

I did notice the feet don't look right for a gator. I attributed it to the animal getting rolled by the vehicle and likely messing them up. I thought that was more plausible than a 3' invasive reptile that I had never heard of loose before. Then we get a post about a dude in the area that has them. Who woulda guessed? Still holding onto the juvi gator theory, until we get better pics.

Whatever it is, no way am I picking it up and putting it in my truck, especially in August. Given enough beers and I might pick it up and put it in your truck though.

The scales are also wrong for a gator. Gators have much wider scales in the top. Definitely a monitor (tegu) with the smaller scales.

This seems reasonably likely.

when i worked at the fire field back in the day our boss jumped on the radio right before lunch and told us all to grab trashcans and hurry up......pissed that we were missing lunch we were pleasantly surprised that he was just trying to corral one of these and some idiot had not mowed over a 500 count paper cups(again). ended up getting it into a can and someone had a dog kennel in the truck so we put it in there and took it to the animal shelter.

I think the real question now that the picture is posted is what does ursus say it is, & what is his suggestion on the best way to cook it.

Let me make sure I have this timeline correct:

1) Approx 5am the OP states there is a dead, chopped up alligator in the bed of his truck. No details. OB, by thread title and first post, are lead to believe OP woke up and found it there.

Page 1 flips to page 2 before the OP ever revisits the thread to post.

2) EIGHT hours later OP comes back to post. Oh he picked up road kill. Put it in truck himself.

3) TWELVE hours later we finally get a photo, its not that gruesome, not bloody, and shocking - not a gator.

Yet somehow this wasn't a troll??

OP is a troll. PFG is a troll.

We need common sense post reform.

Common sense post reform is one of the main issues I address in my platform for my Presidential campaign.

100% tegu... actually an Argentine black and white tegu.

There is no question, this is the right answer. Page 12fmane if you want the experts confirmation.

Ok. I concede. I finally looked at the pic on my desktop computer and the scales are not gator scales at all.
However, I don't think this event ever happened. I think this was a MFBarnes troll job. Nobody is going to stop in August and pick that thing up, the story narrative doesn't follow, and the timeline doesn't either. Personally, I applaud the effort. I have a slow week and this was entertaining.

Won't be sustainable until you're TexAZ2Tea. Should get that changed then relaunch to much success.

The OP is kind of an odd dude so I don't think he was trolling.

Tegus are not monitor lizards. They are a prime example of convergent evolution.

This is the best part of the thread. A Super double thow down atomic leg drop and didn't miss a beat, literally.

Just going off your posting history and a few folks I know who have met you.

Odd ain't necessarily bad.
