Alligator Watermelon Carving

Seems there are a few Alligator Watermelon Carvings showing up on the web suddenly, but Clive's was the first and I still think the best (though there are some good ones, I must admit).  This was featured last year in Ripley's Eye-Popping Oddities book.  Make sure you share this one, it deserves to go viral!
