This past spring when I was going to the Celery Fields nature area every morning, there would be the occasional alligator in the water. There is a river-like body of water that runs through the other side of this wetland and the alligator would be in the large area where the river takes a sharp bend and becomes a lot wider. That is many hundreds of feet away and it took a spotting scope to really identify the dark shape as an alligator and not just a log.
I guess there must be more than one because I found this little fellow just off the side of the observation deck. He is maybe a little over a foot long. Still looks pretty mean though, doesn’t he.
