Last week my boyfriend and I went on an Airboat tour through the Everglades at the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. It was so much fun, I wish it was longer! We saw about ten alligators, maybe around the same about in different kind of bird species, a few turtles popped up here or there, and some fish were jumping while we were stopped looking at the different plants and a gator trying to bask in the sun that kept popping in and out of the clouds.
It was a lot of fun! The guide mentioned that at this time of the year all of the gators would mostly be young females so they were relatively small, the biggest one we saw was maybe just over six feet. It’s funny how if you were to talk about a person’s height and you said they were six feet or more you would be like wow he/ she is really tall but mentioning it about the gator I’m thinking like ehh that’s actually kind of on the small side, It’s funny how those things go.
All I can say is that thank goodness we didn’t see any snakes I think I would have had a panic attack! Especially when the guide mentioned that the python invasion is disrupting the alligator population because they eat them! … Ugh my stomach sank! And what made matter worse was that he mentioned it only takes the python six day to digest it! Only SIX! Although a very cool fact he was way more excited about it then needed to be.
I hope you Enjoy!
