Huntin' Gators on the Geaux: Gator Incognito | bonveillercher.com

We first found this Gator on the Geaux when leaving from 35 Years of Victor Monsour. I spotted her in the window of a business and added it to our long list of Gators on the Geaux!

Gator Incognito is inside Lake Charles Office Supply at 320 7th Street in Lake Charles, Louisiana. She’s decorated with Mardi Gras masks and even has a wig on! It was originally located at US Unwired, and the artist is Betty T. Breaux.

Huntin’ Gators on the Geaux: Local Lendagator Remastered  0

Huntin' Gators on the Geaux: Local Lendigator Remastered | bonveillercher.com

This Gator on the Geaux was one of the first we heard about as it was originally the Local Lendigator and stood outside First Federal Savings and Loan on 1135 Lake Shore Drive in Lake Charles, Louisiana. However, time and weather took its toll, so when we went to find him, we only saw the square of concrete where he had stood. But we were not discouraged! It was Sunday, so the bank (now First Federal Bank) was closed, but I snuck a peek through a window and could just make out a Gator on the Geaux head! So we added him back onto our list to visit during business hours.

Originally done by artist Susan Arnold Fuerst, from pictures it looks like this Gator on the Geaux had a mosaic pattern on its back and was a beautiful array of blues. It was redone by Fred Stark in 2015 and now is covered in paper money images with a large First Federal Bank logo on its chest. It also has a nice texture to it that makes it unique!Huntin' Gators on the Geaux: Local Lendigator Remastered | bonveillercher.com

It’s a surprise Gator on the Geaux! My boyfriend and I were just driving around Big Lake and spotted this lovely Gator under the carport of a house.Huntin' Gators on the Geaux: The Red Gator of Big Lake | bonveillercher.com

Luckily the owner was there and was so kind to tell us all about it! Lois Manena said she bought this Gator on the Geaux from a fundraiser in Lake Charles. Originally it was designed as a fisherwoman, but after it was knocked down and broken in half during a storm she had it fixed and repainted. Now she dresses it up for each season and holiday!

Do you or anyone you know have a Gator on the Geaux hidden away at home? Please let us know because we would love to come take pictures and share it!
