American Alligator

Alligator mississippiensis

Description:

Hiding among the Water Lettuce (https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/14...) It was really easy to miss amongst all the water lettuce. It looked like a log or just another natural part of the landscape. In the last two photos you can see it's nictitating membrane.

Habitat:

Flooded area on La Chua Trail surrounding the boardwalk in Payne's Prairie. The Water Lettuce seem to appear out of nowhere after an area floods, giving a lot of shelter to animals very quickly when a new body of water appears
