I'm going to talk about the alligator of course. What we might see when we are in the everglades and how we should respond to alligators. It is very possible that we might see some upset females since we will be there while they will be either building nests or guarding them, we just missed breeding season. I didn't think there was much to learn about gators but I was wrong and now I get to teach you guys what I learned I found it interesting and important to the ecosystem and wildlife of the south.
