Alligator mississippiensis, 11 June 2016

Alligator mississippiensis, the American alligator;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (11 June 2016, Nikon D7100).

A juvenile American alligator, Alligator mississippiensis, chilling out on a mild summer night back in 2016. The little gator was on a dirt road flanked by canals lines on each side. A fairly cooperative little scamper for at least a few minutes. And then? BAM! The gator darted back into the safety of the darkened waters.
