American Alligator

Alligator mississippiensis

Description:

Alligators are apex predators and consume fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Hatchlings feed mostly on invertebrates. They play an important role as ecosystem engineers in wetland ecosystems through the creation of alligator holes, which provide both wet and dry habitats for other organisms.

Habitat:

Freshwater wetlands/marshes @ Orlando Wetlands Park

Notes:

The park is always full of gators. We must have seen about 10 as we were walking around
