He Slipped Under, Alligator

He Slipped Under, Alligator

I really tried to get a full body shot. He was too quick.

I was walking and noticed him out of the corner of my eye. Typing that now it’s a bit strange since he was long, very long. Tall grass was between us, finally rushed to an opening, as he slipped under.

If you have ever been around them you know they sink. Straight down, no bubbles, no movement. Just sink.

Alligators have the unique ability to change their bodies center of gravity! They have four muscles to move their lungs. Yep, lungs of air back of the gator, a dive. Lungs of air front of gator, rise up. Even to the sides to roll over.

All the above with no ripple in the water.
