While inside Everglades National Park, we saw plenty of American Alligators. I was assuming, however, that all of the large alligator-looking reptiles were, well...alligators. My assumption was quite wrong. It turns out that the only place in the world where you can see alligators and crocodiles in the same habitat is South Florida.
Tammy and I took a stroll around Eco Pond, near Flamingo, and there was an alligator laying out in the sun on a piece of wood. We overheard another person, however, talking about the crocodile. When we inquired about our apparent misidentification, we learned that what we thought was just one more alligator was, in fact, an American Crocodile. Later we got word that there was another crocodile hanging around the marina in Flamingo. When we checked it out, we were delighted to see another American Crocodile poking its head up out of the water under the dripping sprayer on a hose, almost like it enjoyed the mini-shower.
