I took my wife to Calderpark when we were winchin. We always laugh at the recollection of watching a baby alligator in a glass cage right up close. Its eyes were wide open and it stood stock-still for ages. The wife was adamant that it was a stuffed dummy and we argued whether it was or wisnae keekin up close for several minutes until it suddenly lunged forward! My wife shrieked and fell over backwards with fright! We never forgot that.
