Hi there. Since you know the identity of your organism -- an American Alligator-- please go ahead and fill in the scientific name field. In this case that would be Alligator mississippiensis. This assists groups and individuals to find your spotting and consider the data that it contributes. It also takes the spotting off the "unidentified" list. With the addition of a reference link (preferably 3) in the spaces provided, the basic information for ID purposes is considered complete. Of course, additional information in the other information spaces is helpful and appreciated. Thank you!
