American alligators (Alligator mississippiensis). These carnivorous reptiles eat a wide range of fish and land animals and will also scavenge on dead animals. They can reach over 4.5 metres in length, and are found in wetland areas all along the US coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Photographed in January on the Anhinga Trail of the Everglades National Park, Florida, USA.
