Alligator and Baby
Photographer: Meg Puente
Location: Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee Wildlife Preserve
This mother American alligator had about 13 babies in this clutch. I had hoped to catch the Mom transporting babies on her head, but had to settle for this one of the baby cuddling up to Mom's side. I think it demonstrates the incredible size difference, even when the little ones are a few weeks old.
