An Alligator Day

Thursday April 14th 2022

It was a mostly sunny day with the peak temperature in the upper eighties. Overall the weather was very similar to Wednesday. Why were the alligators behaving so differently?

Slowly flowing Myakka River

On Wednesday the alligators were staying in the water with only their heads above water. Today they were lining the banks of the Myakka River, but not in their usual spots. Most of the alligators were on the downriver side of the bridge and were on the opposite bank from their normal hang out. The few that were left on the upriver side of the bridge were also on the opposite bank. Do they know a full moon is coming?

The full moon is approaching.
