Alligators are todays focus. Alligators were in the Dora Canal, and in Garnett Lake in Lake County, FL. I enjoy seeing ‘gators at a nice safe distance. These big reptiles eat ducks, coots, small birds, fish, turtles, eggs, and sometimes snakes and small marsh animals. They are wild and can occasionally be dangerous to people.
I saw one Alligator way out in the middle of a large lake! I was surprised that this particular ‘gator was swimming so far away from the marshy shoreline. I took these pictures on Friday, April 25, 2014 when I was on a day-long boat ride through several Central Florida waterways on a friend’s pontoon boat.
