Roly Poly alligator

Oh look, an alligator close to the boardwalk. Of course, he’s not going to move. They never do for me.

Oh wait, I think he moved.

Maybe not.

He is moving! Looks like he’s rolling over in the water. Maybe trying to catch a fish.

He’s opening his mouth wide.

He straightened back up.

He swam off into the shade.

That was exciting. Other people get to see them walking across the trail or eating a turtle. I get to see him take a big gulp of water. Actually, it was the highlight of the morning at Lettuce Lake Park.

  1. Love the title you gave this, Dina. I’m somewhat frightened of alligators, as we have none here in Canada, but for some reason I love to see bears in the wild.

  2. Interesting photos of the ‘gator, it’s so funny to see him do a roll. I guess if I were in Florida I would be afraid to get very close to brackish water.
