We have been so many alligators out in the Everglades from large and small. We spotted a huge 12 foot alligator on the wildlife drive through the Preserve on a recent Adventure tour, and the same day saw baby alligators. Beware though! Momma was less than 5 feet away keeping a sharp eye so we kept our distance. We have been seeing lots of birds including roseate spoonbills. It is such a beautiful area to explore.
