You find these all over Florida in the small ponds and lakes. This one measured almost 18-inches along the shell. This time of the year, they are busy laying eggs to feed the larger birds before they go back into the water to provide a meal or the ever growing Gators.
Big Mama Gator
This elegant lady, that we all call “Mama GATOR” is one of our many wandering examples of florida wildlife in our community, here at Riverside Club.
I caught this shot while she was “sunnin'” next to our Boat docks. Aint she cute.
