Alligator exhibit at Natural Science Museum

Link - Quentin and I checked out the Alligators exhibit that started recently at the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science (and, coincidentally, the American alligator's scientific name is Alligator mississippiensis, so it's fitting). I'm going to add some pictures this afternoon, but here's a link to all of the photos being displayed. A collection of all C.C. Lockwood's alligator pictures have been published by LSU Press.

Lockwood points out good spots to photograph wild alligators are in Florida, at Everglades National Park and Wakulla Springs State Park; in Louisiana, on the Nature Trail at the Sabine National Wildlife Refuge and in Jean Lafitte National Park; in Georgia, at the Okefenokee Swamp; and just about any park or refuge in the southeast that has waterways.
