Baby Gators. Sweetwater Dike, La Chua Trail, Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park. Gainesville, Florida. 2014.
These babies hatched sometime last week. There were about 20 of them, and as soon as they saw us walking up the trail, they zipped into the water, closer to their mother, who kept a very watchful eye over all passers by.
You can read my blog about walking this trail for the last time here: http://earthteachme.blogspot.com/2014/09/ch-ch-ch-ch-changes.html
