Alligator, Everglades National Park, Florida- click to see full size image
The first animal that comes to mind when you think of the Everglades has to be alligators-- or possibly mosquitos! Regrettably, I don't have a photo of a mosquito as I was too busy swatting at them. This alligator is just soaking up some warm sunshine right next to the road. If you look close you can tell the grass has been mowed on the side of the road, leaving lots of sunshine and a great place for the gators to soak up some warmth. Taken just a few feet from the Shark Valley Visitor Center, which is one of the best places in the north section of the park to see wildlife such as alligators. Another good location to spot alligators is the Royal Palm area.
