Amazing, I never knew gators take care of their offspring like that. Thanks for posting, Ed.

Nice shots, Ed. I am assuming there was a stout fence between you and Mom! I have heard that as fierce as the parents are, baby gators and crocs don't fare so well in the wild. Is that true? At any rate those are some nice pictures.

Baby gators may stay with mom as long as three years, if they last. They are fair game for large birds and fish (Largemouth Bass) as well as male alligators.

Interesting - I never knew that gators took care of their babies. But they sure aren't cuddly.

Yikes! Just think of all those teeth. I love the third shot with the baby between it's mommy's eyes. Guess he wants to see what mom sees :-)

Those are great, what a contrast between the babies and mom!
