The weather here in NJ started to get a little warmer and the heavy snow fall finally started to melt. Which meant we could actually get out for a walk. It felt Great to be able to get a nice walk outside. As we were walking I was surprised to see this very rare New Jersey Snow Gator warming on a sidewalk. It was one of the largest I have seen here. I managed to get a couple of images of this rare sighting. The featured image was taken with an iPhone 11 Pro with 6mm lens (Full Frame Equivalent 52mm). It was not moving so we were able to get by it and continued on our walk with the satisfaction of getting a few images of this rare NJ Snow Gator. If you come across one beware of it’s Frost Bite! Thanks for humoring me!
That’s true. I hear that they only come out every 20 years or so. So you were lucky to find this one.
Thanks so much! Did not know about the 20 years or so! Learn something every day! Thanks again!
Hilarious! Looks like we made it back to the Midwest from South Padre Island just in time – we may be colder, but at least we have power.
Thanks! And hopefully you will not loose power! We are supposed to get more snow & ice in the next few days. At least our community has underground electric, no telephone & power poles so it seems more dependable in snow & bad weather.
He looks kind of friendly 😊
Yes! It was not menacing at all! But maybe it was sleeping!
Yes! It was not menacing at all. Just sort of had a cold stare!
Haha, loved it, Reed! 🙂
Thanks Eliza! That is how the snow blew there & melted! I just added 1 eye!
Ha, ha! Clever, Reed! 🙂
Thanks Steve! It was fun to find! It was funny that the snow blew & melted in that shape! I just added 1 eye.
Fabulous rare sighting, Reed! Love it!! 😁
Thanks! It did seem very docile! I was able to get really close and it did not move!
