Alligators don’t say much. But when they do you listen, and pay attention.
It’s a deep rumble and at times everything around them vibrate.
It’s called profiling. Usually it’s a bull and they are calling a mate or starting a territory fight.
It’s not mating season so he was calling attention to himself.
While he is looking at me in the above shot there were at least 5 other Alligator around us. I didn’t take it personal.
If you are a wildlife photographer this is a pretty serious opportunity. Not an everyday occurrence.
