I don’t see any gators wearing tutus, so this could be a problem.

Okay, Rivera! Is this an alley or a horseshoe-shaped cove? Perhaps “cul-de-sac” would be more apropos?

I wonder if today’s strip is an insider-salute to Rivera’s predecessors. Why? All of the text entries end with an apostrophe! Anyway, I have to correct Rivera once again:  This is not Mark Trail’s cryptid hunt. It is Rusty’s cryptid hunt. Mark is simply the driver, who is screwing things up.

Since Mark can sometimes communicate with animals, perhaps he can convince some of the reptiles to give the boat a push.
