so far, suggestions have been...
Samson & Delilah
Nick & Nicky
Jack & Jill
Puglsy & Petunia
Charles & Camilla
Jasiri and Jauhar
Ali & Ally (from BV)
......
Personally, I'm leaning towards either Samson & Delilah or Pugsly & Petunia....

MY pair of gators years agon at the Poole serpentarium were 'Mississippi Joe and Alabama Annie. Bit long-winded I guess.

Reminds me of our Blue Tongues - Fat Joe and Miss Hissy :) Miss Hissy regulaly chews on me, as I carry her inside at night - really strange, not sore, just a sort of "pressure" and when I look down, she's got her mouth wrapped around my arm :-? Not that that is related, of course...
And Rick has just commented that we can't have Swahili names for 'gators because there ARE no 'gators in Swahili-land, and no Swahili's in Gator land....

Then the boy has to be Bubba and the girl Rose or Mary Lou.

Ha ha, have really enjoyed this :) The winner came through on our FaceBook page, although we only took the one name, but it inspired us for the second - Nick Hall from the US suggested Diesel and Daisy, didn't go for Daisy so much but Diesel suits the boy so well, and as an 'Oils fan from way back (that's Midnight Oil for the youngsters :) ) we ended up with ....( Drumroll ). .... Diesel and Dusty . Hope you all like !! Mr S, thanks, she's come such a long way and we are so proud of her :) . Hopefully next years babies will hatch out and we'll have little Dust Devils :)
