We were invited to bring our alligator, Uncle", from Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls to be on the Discovery Channel's new show,
Pop Nation that was being shot in Austin, Texas.
We spent all day Wednesday, June 15, 2005, building a 17' crate to house the alligator in for the trip as seen in the pictures below.
Thursday evening, June 16, 2005 me, my son and a friend headed out for our 1,200 mile adventure to Austin Texas. As we were getting ready to load him up, a wild dove flew into the garage and landed on the alligators head.
We drove straight through (over 20 hours) to get to Austin. Below are some pictures of the film crew and us taken when we arrived in front of the convention center Saturday morning, June 18, 2005.
The following pictures were taken inside before and during filming.
