Everybody loves babies, and alligators are no different. During a hike along the Shark Valley 11 mile loop in late January in the Everglades National Park in Florida, a few years back, I came upon a series of baby alligator nests. I had seen many alligators large and small previous to this, but this was my first encounter with these cute little critters.

It’s too bad they don’t stay cute for long!

Wow, that’s crazy! But I agree with Leigh. You’re lucky you got that shot and the mother wasn’t around!

The mother was around, but I kept my distance. This shot was with a zoom 🙂
Wow!!! That’s a lot of baby alligators. Were you scared you’d find the mom near this “nest”? I feel there’s part of this story you aren’t telling… lol

I took this with a pretty good zoom camera. I was across the canal on a trail safe from harm.
They are cute, YES! But can change the fact that they are dangerous and not a kind of pet lover.

Sorry but I don’t find them cute. I’m afraid of alligators. But still, I appreciate your post. Thanks with the photos!
