American Alligator with Turtle
Photographer: Cindy Cone
Location: Shark Valley, Everglades National Park
I came upon this scene while biking along the tram road at Shark Valley. The gator couldn't open it's mouth any wider and the turtle couldn't move. At this point, the turtle was unharmed. After watching for 30 minutes or longer, I left them at this impasse.
