They found at least one inlet at LOTO that has a minimal temperature of 57 F. They also did testing in labs that showed that they can survive up to 50 F water.

Hopefully, The 5' alligator that got away last year will eat them and keep us safe at The Lake.

I can't believe someone was actually dumb enough to dump a piranha in LOTO. People amaze me.

It's funny that you mention an alligator being released because some idiot released one here in NW Indiana on the lake my parents live on. A convservation officer was fianlly able to locate it and kill it towards the end of the summer.

I use to have one in an aquarium. I got it when I was about 8 or 9 yrs old. Had it for about 10 yrs. My mom put tap water in the tank to top it off without using a product to counter the chlorine in tap water. I had a product that would basically cancel out the chlorine in tap water so it would be safe to put in fish tanks. She didn't know about it and topped off the tank and killed it.
He was real mellow. I could stick my hand in the tank and actually pet him. Fed him goldfish, guppies, shrimp, whatever I could get. In all the years I had him, I never saw him eat. He would wait until the lights were off. At one point, he didn't eat for about 3 weeks. I put about 60 guppies in one evening. He didn't touch them until I turned the lights out that night. I could hear him going at it attacking the guppies. The next morning there were 2 left. Actually made a pretty cool pet.

I probably had 20 over the yrs. The red belly variety were aggressive. They wouldn't eat until we were motionless for 20 to 30 minutes. They can survive in Loto. An elderly couple fishing off my point caught a cross bred. He was huge. The size of a LARGE crappie. He was all white and was doscile with huge teeth. Lets hope that they either die out (doubt it) or cross bred with something doscile! By the way I never put any of my fish in any lake.

the article is old, not sure how old the show was last night. the article also says the fish cant breed with other species. But if you believe what Jeff goldblum said in Jurassic park, nature finds a way to preserve itself.. ever see Betty white in the movie lake placid, lol?
