Later Alligator!

Today I have some shots from the Alligator Adventure Park in Myrtle Beach! Needless to say, they had thousands of alligators... They were all laying around in the sun..I don't blame them, it was a beautiful day! One keeper there said they don't eat from November until April, so we didn't get to see the Feeding of the Alligator show...probably just as well! There were also a lot of reptiles including turtles, lizards, frogs and snakes. Parrots and other birds too! I'll add some of those soon as well!

1st Pic-the girls feeding Dad to the alligator
2nd Pic-a big guy laying in the sun
3rd Pic-a creeper
4th pic-the three amigos hanging out in the sun
5th pic-one of the younger ones (he was probably about 3 feet long--just a baby!)
6th pic-a big one, who's jaws were like that the whole time, so maybe he was powering up for feeding time!
7th pic-this was the biggest one recorded in the world..it was from Japan..not sure of it's name (yes it did have one!)
8th pic-this was one of the Albino alligators that they had. They have to stay inside as they can get sunburnt!

See, it was educational too, not just for entertainment! :-)
