      and just another aside as to how foolish she was, the reason this happened was in her other hand she's holding the red feeding bucket
      so the gator knows it's about to eat. This wasn't an aggressive attack, it was just chow time. That's why it's so excited when she opens the door to get in

      not a great idea to put your hand on a gators muzzle when its waiting to be fed

        anon... the whole thing went perfectly after the aligator latched on. Some dude who knows nothing was able to hold it down and everyone got off scot free, with the exception of some minor injury to her hand. The aligator bit because it thought it was being fed, and even let go without having to be harmed. Now a pitbull on the other hand will latch on to you just because you look at it funny, and it will thrash and shake regardless of being restrained, and it will also not let go without a bullet being put in its head. The only reason it is even a question between the two is because you are comparing a reptile longer than a man to a fricking dog.

          well It was partially dumb luck she didn't lose that arm
          by chance it happened to grab her palm up and rolled in the direction that allowed her arm to make a full rotation
          it did break the bones in her forearm and require surgery though

    Alligators are literally reptile-brained, and therefore very easily conditioned into a set sensory-input/response mechanic. They will behave the exact same way to a given set of circumstances every single time, and are thus predictable. If a human conditions them a certain way, and knows what he or she is doing, the alligator will never consider them a food or a threat.

    Pitbulls are inbred to the point of mass-mental moronation/violent insanity being the default state for their "breed". This makes them unstable and totally unpredictable. Every single pitbull is a ticking time bomb that only needs one crossed wire, one out-of-the-usual neural stimulation to start mauling its owner, and starts predatory behavior for the nearest living thing smaller than itself every time it gets hungry.

      you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about regarding gators. they are not trainable. there's been plenty of morons in florida that have been mauled by their pet gators that they had for years. their brains do not have the neuroplasticity needed for imparting certain behaviors on them. you're not going to overcome hundreds of millions of years of evolution because you subject them to certain conditions a couple times

    The only problem with pitbulls is that we call them pitbulls. Call them Cerberus and then their proper place would be understood by more people.

    Reptiles amaze me. Everything we’re told and shown is that they’re cold, heartless animals, purely driven by instinct. Yet there are actually bearded dragons and others that somehow “enjoy” being cuddled etc. by humans.

      Reptiles are definitely smarter and more socially aware than people give them credit for, the biggest problem is that they're just so far removed from mammals that we can't really understand them. It's like trying to understand an alien.

      They are cold blooded and like warmth. Reptiles do not feel empathy like a mammal. Don’t be fooled.

        They might not feel empathy, but if you’ve ever been around a bearded dragon you might be surprised by how interested they are in running up to you and watching your every movement. They remember their names and will choose to be beside the human they like rather than strangers, and they love watching TV or video games.

          Which is even weirder when you consider that unlike alligators which raise their young for up to 3 years, bearded dragons are hatched entirely alone and live their lives in isolation.

          Their brains are missing huge areas that would control emotion and complex thought. That’s where reptile brain comes from. There is nothing there.

            Reptiles do have emotions, just not in the same “way” as mammals. Like the previous anon said, they’re just more alien to us. Snakes can experience anxiety, distress, excitement, fear, frustration, pain, stress, and suffering,

        Gators being chill makes sense. Having travelled to Florida, they seem to have their choice selection in food (waterfowl, turtles, fish). They probably fill up in the first 30 minutes after they wake up and spend the rest of the day straight chilling in the warm water.
        When a human falls in a creek, they're probably like, shit, I'm already full. Guess this human gets to live.

          wrong, gators are constantly hungry but they also dont need to eat a lot, like once a week, one of the perks of being cold blooded. now the problem with humans is theyre fricking huge, so they dont want to start shit with something "bigger" and if you dont pose yourself as territorial being, theyll leave you alone, and because they eat constantly you can train them pretty easily with positive reinforcement

    Both are moronic choices if you don't know what your pet is capable of. And since a pitbull is more likely to be walked, and easier to buy, I'd say a pitbull is more likely to be dangerous to others. If it kills the owner, no one would care. Frick the naive bastards who keep creatures they cannot control.

      They're actually somewaht intelligent, can respond to verbal commands, know their own names, and are (surprise surprise) very highly food motivated, that all adds up to an animal that's easy to train, yes.
      That said, they've got a crazy food response and are still lethally dangerous even then.

        The crocodile would frick you up, but the alligator is better. Now the thing with the pitbull is you're playing distorted rng, It could be fine until the day It dies or not, Alligator if hatched likely will not frick you up if you NEVER EVER frick up... Also something else but forgot so I'll say you're playing a roulette (pit) or a deal with an unflexible devil (alligator), then again the gator could just decide one day It wants to be wild, good luck.

        Once again, Crocos are worse than Gators

        Actually true. Visited a good friend who relocated to central FL after high school. We were exploring some marshes on the property of one of his buddy's. We saw a gator just chilling with his eyes above water about 40ish feet from the bank. He then went "watch this". He crouched down on the bank for about 30 seconds and then the gator saw him. It made a straight beeline for him, my friend stood up once it got close, and the gator instantly made a right angle turn from the bank like it was never even heading toward him
