This particular marsh usually is the home of only the big guys. Alligators eat anything, including each other. So if you were a smaller gator this is a place you avoid.
I did see a few younger ones last visit. I doubt they will stay. Pretty soon it’s mating season and the growls and roars will scare them right back down and over the dikes to where they came from.
