Here in Florida, there are some restaurants that serve Gator Tail. Usually, it is served as an appetizer.
While we were walking around Gatorland on our last trip, I noticed some Black Vultures very near the end of an alligator. They were across the pond, so I zoomed in to see what they were doing.
I’m thinking to myself:
#1 – These birds are crazy being that close to the gator.
#2 Maybe they are picking bugs or weeds off of its tail.
Before I tell more, let me continue on with the rest of the visit. When we got to my favorite part where the birds ride on the alligators (See Gatorland’s Taxi Service), I was again videoing the activities. I noticed on the little island that some more Black Vultures were again at the tail of another large alligator.
Here is a crop of the crop. You can see him actually eating the meat right out of a living alligator. He couldn’t even wait for them to batter and fry up a piece for him.
I also took a video of some of this:
Now I see why Vultures are on the “Do Not Eat” list! They are a Bird of the Bible after all.
“‘These, moreover, you shall detest among the birds; they are abhorrent, not to be eaten: the eagle and the vulture and the buzzard, and the kite and the falcon in its kind, every raven in its kind,” (Leviticus 11:13-15 NASB)
