Last year as we exited the monorail at Epcot I looked down and saw a big, black snake slithering across the walkway/entrance right outside the security checkpoint. Guess he didn't get clearance to enter...whew!!

I saw something similar in the lake by the GF/Poly. I thought it was an otter but perhaps it was a "water rat"??

We were on the beach at the Polynesian for Wishes. Little kids were playing in the sand at edge of the water when Ally Gator swam by.

The white splotches are gnats reflecting the flash. But that red dot on the water is the eye of an alligator that swam by when we were waiting for the fireworks. When I over-lighten the image, you can make out a bit of the snout. — with Ally Gator.
