Default How many gators can you count?

Wife and I were looking at a pic she took a year back at Everglades National Park. There were many more outside the frame.

Huge group for the wild. My guide buddies there are seeing more and more American crocodiles too.

It would be hard for me to count any, I would be too busy screaming and running. I know great efforts were expended to save them, I am just not sure why.

They are far from being endangered. I love to hunt them...and eat them. I hate the FWC lottery system to get tags. I wish it was still first come/served. I didn't draw again this year.

I'll never forget driving down 41 between Naples and Miami a few years ago. I look over in the canal and there were literally HUNDREDS of gators on the bank of the canal. For miles!! I've never seen anything like it.

Must be the dry season "winter time"

Lots of areas of the glades start drying up, the deeper watering holes hold large volumes of gators. There are viewing areas to some of the bigger watering holes in the national park, this a regular occurrence between January and May. It's a site to behold.
