    We took the Tamiami Blvd thru the Everglades last April and my husband counted over 100 along the sides of the canal. I think it was mating season.

    That looks a lot like Shark Valley, part of Everglades National Park. You could walk, rent a beater bike for a coouple of bucks or take the tram.
    Never saw so much wildlife in one place. The gators were just about that thick and I remember thinking, "How do they make this work?" Seeing as how people don't act that intelligently around wild animals with sharp teeth.

    Is from the shark valley tram road in Everglades NP. Shark Valley is not really a valley as such but a slough that is justa few feet lower than the surrounding land. The tram road was built to haul out cypress back in the day.

    Or feeding time and they were looking for someone changing a flat tire
    I was self employed once, but it proved too stressful. My boss was a jerk and my employee was a slacker - I didn't know whether to quit or fire myself.

    No, it's for real deal. Come down to Shark Valley and be a believer. Best to come in cooler weather when they are moving a little slower.

    Nope, that's a real picture cause I saw the same thing for miles and miles and miles, just lining the sides of the canals.

    There are two kinds of pedestrians: the quick and the dead.
    Dogs are excellent judges of character, this fact goes a long way toward explaining why some people don't like being around them.

    Its real. I've seen more gators in a drainage canal by my house. In the Everglades they're everywhere.

    Just last week I had a post deleted for asking if there are alligators on WB.
    The trail was here before we arrived, and it will still be here when we are gone...enjoy it now, and preserve it for others that come after us

    The Shark Valley road in Everglades National Park, closed after an alligator bit a 7-year-old boy on Saturday, was reopened to pedestrians and cyclists Thursday morning.
    Alexandre Teixeira, of Sao Paulo, Brazil, was bitten in the chest after he crashed his bicycle into a canal along the 15-mile loop, which is a popular tourist spot on the northern edge of the park.
    The boy's parents were able to pry him loose from the 5-to 6-foot-long alligator. Teixeira suffered a punctured lung in the incident but is expected to recover from his wounds.
    Park officials couldn't identify the alligator involved in the attack. They view the incident as a freak accident and aren't taking any special precautions.
    Officials urge visitors not to feed the animals and to stay at least 15 feet from alligators.

    Alligators do bite.
