When I was in Florida we went to Everglades City and took an alligator tour. It was so much fun! The alligator pictured was about 10 feet long and at one time I was about 3 feet away from it. We were on an air boat, which was a blast too. I learned a lot about alligators from the tour guide.
1. The scales seen are actually their bones sticking out.
2. Alligators can run up to 25mph on land
3. They can swim up to 10mph in water.
4. They can be up to 24 feet long.
Pretty interesting, right!?
