The Fish Were Flying!

Our pal Mr. Gator was really getting things all stirred up in the salt marsh last night, and by “things” I mean lots of small fish! They were busting out of the water all over the place as the big boy was lunging out, splashing down, and swallowing mouthfuls of the tasty treats. The fish did not have much hope for escape either, the alligator had them corralled in a shallow landlocked pool formed by the receding tide. It was close to total dark by the time we left and Mr. Alligator was still at it sloshing about gobbling up the hapless fish. I bet he slept well last night!

  1. Wow. And what an overused word to describe this series. I’m guessing he had to eat a lot of small fry to fill up. I love his skin and the detail here. Really cool stuff.

    • He would need a lot of those small fish, shrimp, and crabs to fill him up, but since he was at it for two hours I think he likely got quite full. 🙂
      I’m very glad you enjoyed this feeding session by our pal Mr. A!
