The third article of a series, Tired Mom.
The image above shows the smaller members of the ‘Alligator Clan’. The larger young in article 2 (click here to view) were on the other side of the water, in those reeds. If you view this image full size you can spot them in the taller grass in the background.
Based on their size I would guess about 1 year old.
Above is Mom resting on the far side of this small stream.
The last image here is of a few smaller ones that were closest to me. If you have read the other 2 previous articles you can see why the exact count of her young was never determined. Too many, too active.
