A Friendly Visit
I wasn’t the only one that noticed this alligator relaxing on a mud bog in the swamp. A pair of coots showed up and decided to get out of the water as well and join our gator friend. At first the coots appeared a little confused and did not seem to be sure what to make of this funny looking ‘log’ that was just laying there. However they quickly became rather excited which attracted the attention of a third coot that came floating over to see what all the fuss was about.
Notice how the alligator does his best to completely ignore the coots throughout the entire event. He was likely just hoping for a quiet morning so he could get in a nice nap but instead had to contend with yacking coots creating an unwanted commotion!
