Everglades, Miami-Dade Co., Florida. July 17, 2016.
Many herpers get their first American Crocodile around the docks at Flamingo, down in the Everglades. I am among them, although I could not get great shots of any crocs there.. I also took a boat ride up one of the canals and saw a large juvenile basking in the mangrove, but it was turned away from me. Someday I will get a decent look at this species. It’s hard to complain, since this was just one of three crocodilian species that I got to see in 2016.
