American Alligator

Alligator mississippiensis


The largest reptile in North America. It has a large, dark (usually black), slightly rounded body and thick limbs.


This big fellow was down the river and on the far shore from where I was. I heard it bellowing early in the morning before it slipped into the water and swam across.
