No tour of the Everglades without the mandatory
Alligator...or crocodile as they both live there
side by side...and there really were a lot of them
in the water.

This one was more on the road though...


Alligators are archosaurs, species of crocodilians and
form the family Alligatoridae (sometimes regarded
instead as the subfamily Alligatorinae).

Alligators proper occur in the fluvial deposits of the
age of the Upper Chalk in Europe, where they did not
die out until the Pliocene age. The true alligators
are now restricted to two species, A. mississippiensis
in the southeastern United States, which can grow to
4.24 m and weigh 454.5, with the record length of 5.81
m, and the small A. sinensis in the Yangtze River,
People's Republic of China, which grows to an average
of 1.5 m.

Hi Thorsten,
uooooo look at those teeth!!! Compare them with the small flowers... I don´t wanna be on his way! jajaja
Good picture: good POV, focus, light and details over the alligator body. The blur background helps a lot.
