    • When I was at boarding school, in the days before there was so much bureaucracy, one of my friends brought her pet baby alligator to school for a term, bringing it all the way from Borneo where her parents were British diplomats. Come to think of it, perhaps the alligator had diplomatic immunity and was allowed to travel with my friend wherever she wanted to take it. Anyway, baby alligators are rather cute, as long as they’re given regular meals (not including little girls’ fingers!).

      • That’s an amazing story, Sarah. As they say, the truth makes for great “fiction,” too. Or maybe one woman’s truth is another’s fiction/fantasy/fairy tale . . . 🙂 On another note, I hope to see a baby alligator making an appearance in your stories or novels. Should I ask what ultimately happened to the ‘gator?

      • I know it went home with my friend for the school holidays and, from what I can remember, it was destined for a zoo when the time was right (before it ate my friend, perhaps!!!).

      • I’m glad it potentially didn’t end up as a pair of boots or handbag. 🙂

      • Quite. I get really furious about things like that. My mother used to have a crocodile handbag and matching pair of shoes just because they were fashionable. She wouldn’t do that now, but I think that people have become more conservation aware now so many species are threatened with extinction. This is where the media works positively – in raising awareness of global issues that need addressing.
