No walks along side trails deep in the grass needed here. The fall sun was up and the locals were getting warm along the dike.
There is about a 30 feet (9 meters) wide canal between the reeds/cane and dike. The waters edge was busy, and crowded.
Their priory is getting warm, they don’t even eat all that much this time of year.
Because they are cold blooded their body pretty much doesn’t need food. Too much is even bad for them.
If you’re an Alligator and you’re not hungry, and not interested in ‘spring activities’, sleeping in the sun is what you have left.
