On A Canal, Alligator

On A Canal, Alligator

I wasn’t looking for Alligators, not that you have too.

I spotted this one lying on the other side of a small marsh canal. I don’t think he was overly large, maybe 8 feet (2.5 meters).

It’s not like there is anything around for perspective however there are a few signs.

The one I use to gauge age, size, is the shape of the head and neck. If they have a large neck, thick throat, they are older animals. A little over half the length of an Alligator is his tail.

If an Alligator is 6 inches (.15 cm) between his nose and eyes he is said to be 6 feet (1.8 meters). I’m not sure on this one, but short of a ruler…
