More Road Trip........Myakka River State Park

The main road through this vast natural wilderness park is lined with these old live oak trees draped in spanish moss.
This gator surfaced a few feet from where I was standing on the shore seconds earlier--good thing they are fairly non-aggressive.


These gators were sunning themselves on the bank--they are pretty big--it is hard to believe that there are giant pythons now being found in the everglades with 5 foot alligators in their bellies!!

I reckon our Australian crocodiles would eat your alligaors for breakfast....
