Wasn't going to post these as I could get shots of them wild in any lake back home but because these are rare and probably wouldn't survive in the wild I'll give them a go.
Made a trip to Silver Springs in Ocala, Florida last trip home, one of many natural springs in FL. This is one of the bigger parks of them with captured animals to show as well as the springs. Hard to get a shot of these as they are kept from the sun which would harm them and behind glass with lots of little smudgy hand prints....best I could do without flash to save the eyes. Don't have much info about them but something to see that some might never, my first.
Hope you like.
Thanks for all the veiws, C&C's on my last shot, appreciate them all.

Forgot to mention that the springs has been used for a few films, mostly the Tarzan movies and still has a rotted out Jeep that was used in one of them sitting in the woods.

Two terrific shots of these unusual and exotic creatures. Are these albinos or Crocodiles crossed with alligators? And if so do they have allidiles?

Superb images taken in water behind glass-- What a curious beast--- Crocks and alligators thrive in sun and water-- These appear to hide?? LOL

Thanks for this exotic view!
