Florida - Even Baby Alligators Can Be Cute
This young guy was relaxing pond-side the other day. He’s just a juvenile and maybe measures 3 feet from the tip of his snout to the tip of his tail. This is a guess-timate, you understand, I did not physically measure him.
Why not, you ask? Even a 3 foot alligator has a mouthful of very sharp teeth. I was surprised the egret was so close to him. He didn’t like us taking his picture and slid back into the pond and submerged himself. The egret remained where he was. We have a culvert opening into the pond that is connected to all the other ponds in Timber Greens and I’m sure Mr. Gator headed through it to find a more private resting place
Isn’t he a cute youngster?
