Mother Alligator and Baby
Photo and caption by Eric Stagg
This picture was taken in the everglades of South Florida, I was just walk thru with my camera expecting to get an awesome photo but never expected to get anything like this. This was a total surprise because I had never seen baby gators this young, that close and in the wild. There's no fences or warning signs here! The babies couldn't be much older than a couple weeks old. The nest I expect they hatched from was about 20 yards from where I took this picture.
