I was watching three young alligators when the adult approached. The adult grabbed this one and went underwater...suddenly it came up to flip the juvenile to eat it. Grassy Waters Preserve is part of the original Everglades, and is a natural area that is part of the water supply for the City of West Palm Beach.

Location: Grassy Waters Preserve, West Palm Beach, Florida, June 2011
