Florida Everglades - Aug, 2007

The best way to get around in the Everglades - Air boat

Alligators stay submerged with just their eyes & nostrils above water.

Looking more like a log than an animal, alligators are ambush predators.

Anyone interested in going for a swim?...

This 10 foot alligator is relatively safe to approach from behind, but don't get near those teeth if you know what's good for you.
