Gator Nest

Thursday, August 27, 2015 8:49 AM

For several years I have tried to photograph the hatching of an alligator nest. Since predicting the hatching time is difficult and Moma gators are not fond of human company, this is best done with trail cameras. This year I have found two nests at the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. The mother gators were not particularly thrilled with my offer to do their family portrait as you can see from the videos. The baby gators should be hatching out soon. Hopefully we will get some good pictures.
