Alligator Profiling, Making A Statement (#2)

This is what you get when one Alligator decides to ‘profile’, growl, and claim territory. An answer. The first article (click here to view) displayed a large male starting the whole thing.

Alligators answered his challenge all around the marsh, including this one close by that I had not even seen.

I was under one of the few trees, in the shade. This one I guess was just down the bank a little ways, getting shade too.

His response was pretty loud, scared this poor Redwing right out of the brush.

I don’t think he was aware of me either since as soon as I moved to get a better angle he came towards us.

I have seen this before, it is instinct. A competitor called out, he came towards movement. Pretty simple. It didn’t help that other Alligators around were still profiling loudly.

I had to lean out over the water to get this last shot, the Alligator was done now… forgot all about the calls. There was a poor Night Heron sitting a short distance from this Alligator. He never moved a muscle, froze in place. He was still there when we moved away.
