Watery Wednesday - Alligator Feeding Time


My son, T, saw more alligators in captivity, like these ones here at Gators With Friends Park in Louisiana, than he did in the wild.  (be still my heart).  What is the fascination with something that looks at you and thinks food?  I shake my head in wonder. 

Gators With Friends has many animals other than gators but for the gator fanatic, you can, if you dare, hold a baby gator.  I don't know that I am brave enough for that! 

A little unsual for Watery Wednesday, this is my submission for the meme found here:  http://waterywednesday.blogspot.com/

I have never seen so many alligators in one photo before. Is it feeding time?

Lesley said...

I like your photo, but it is not a sight I particularly want to see in real life!

But cats see us and think "food" too! I find alligators endearing. I've kayaked alongside them here in florida and they pay little notice... its the fishermen wading in the water with chum and bait that make the headlines.

oh my, they're in a frenzy! alligators are fascinating creatures, but i won't wade into the water with them.:p

Prehistoric reptiles scare me. We have 15' crocs that I can definitely do without.
Nice shot though.

Wow~ great WW shot! Hope they're fed well so they don't look for alternative food sources :-)

Irene said...

It's so freaky - great shot!

Alligators in their primal glory are a fascinating. Living dinosaurs. Great shot for WW!

Judy said...

There is something so primordial about alligators. I think it is the closest we can come to imagining the dinosaurs...
I would be interested to hold a baby, as they would be too little to do any harm... These places have to have insurance, after all!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting.
Wow, this is great shot. I hope they don't cannibalize themselves!!!
Thanks for sharing.
