I was watching this young alligator sloshing around in the salt marsh yesterday afternoon and he seemed to be mostly scooping up mouthfuls of small fish and glass shrimp. Suddenly the gator lifted his head up out of the water and I saw it had a fresh caught blue crab.
He crunched on the crab for a few seconds then lifted his head and neck up out of the water and swallowed his treat right down.
In the last photo I thought he had kind of a happy, satisfied look on his face. It was quite likely his first crab of the season and he seemed to really enjoy it!
