    Just don't go to Texas from what I'm reading. Most sites seem to agree in the 11mph range for a typical gator. A human they say is approximately 28mph. An adult human is said to be in the range of 10-15mph! Seems like a fair fight if ya ask me.

    But if you're in Texas - "According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, alligators can run up to 35 mph on land. Although these animals are frighteningly quick runners, they are only able achieve these speeds in short bursts and maintain it for only very short distances."

    I might remind you, if near water and retreating from a gator, a short burst, short distance is all the sucker will need.

    So, whether Texas, or taking chances elsewhere - my recommendation? As always, never go alone! If you go in a pair, or even better in a small group, then you likely only need to be faster than the slowest person there. Or in reality, from what I recall and could be wrong, run in a zig zag pattern as they run straight. My recommendation? As you zig zag, zag in front of the slowest person there.
    How do you catch a unique rabbit? Unique up on him! (was my Mom's favorite joke )
