Here's a job skill you probably never thought of picking up, and by "picking up", we mean "picking up".

Yes, if alligator wrestling is on your bucket list we have the place for you and that would be "Colorado Gators" in, yes, Colorado.

It seems more like the everglades than the evergreens, but "Colorado Gator" is a real place and for just 100 dollars, you can learn to "wrestle" alligators.

Not actually wrestling,the company says, but learning how to handle the creatures safely and responsibly. For three hours, you get to get close to alligators--starting with the small angry ones, and working up to the nine-foot nightmares.

If you're lucky, maybe you'll get to meet "Morris", the movie alligator, featured in such films as "Alligator", and its sequel "Alligator -Two" as well as "Happy Gilmore" and "Blues Brothers 2000".
