I've seen plenty of them in all the swamps on the
refuge.Some are very big.From what I've seen of them,
they just want to be left alone.A friend of mine and
myself found a den and outside of it,in the water,
were three gators.We were fishing this area and they
just submerged and swam away from us.Two went under
a log across the creek,but the third didn't come up on
the other side like the previous two.He finally came back up
and crawled over the log.He was too big to go under it.
That was one big alligator.Seeing them out of the water
makes you appreciate just how big they are.
I just hope folks leave them alone.They sure won't
bother them and they add to the pleasure of those
spots just knowing they are there.
