Description

Big-time lifer for me and the reason for my trip. I know American alligators are common across the Gulf and Atlantic Coasts, but I have always wanted to see one in Oklahoma.

Description

The first I've seen since I've been spending a lot of time around the lake beginning in August 2015. This bit of the nose was probably some 25cm wide, so there was a lot of alligator tucked under this bank.

Description

I was eating at a restaurant in Tallahassee, Florida, whiling visiting my aunt during spring break. Walked out on the pier and this big fellow was sitting in the water. He had humps on his back and looked really aggressive as I stood their on the pier terrified. He has a round shape nose and his eye are kind of close together.
