As some of you saw on Instagram last week I had the opportunity to sit and watch these two hang out with one another for quite awhile. And no need to worry, there are no ‘parents’ lurking in the background as once alligators reach a certain length (this one was way past it even for a little guy) they venture out into the wilderness on their own. It was fun to sit by the pool and have a little entertainment from the ‘pond’.
The above are them ‘approaching’ our area…. the following was humorous to watch and we kept wondering why they had come so close, until we threw a piece of ice into the water and they both swam very quickly to it…realizing that they must be used to people feeding them… not a good sign if the gators in the area have been feed by people…then they are not as hesitant to approach them.
We have seen a total of 3 alligators in three different places of only being here just over a week… is quite exciting but nerve racking walking around certain places also.
Enjoy your weekend!
