I spent Tuesday morning taking photos at Brazos Bend State Park. I stumbled upon an absolute FEEDING FRENZY of Alligators! I've spent quite a bit of time around gators, and have never experienced anything like this. There were 20-30 mature gators in one small area (no larger than 1 acre in size) all actively feeding on fish. Getting photos of them in action was a little tough, but I managed to get a few good action shots. Also, the big bull gator in the first two photos was truly a monster!! (Conservatively I think he was 14+ ft)

I hope you guys enjoy...

Cool shots. Your 'bull' gator is probably a female in reality. Most gators over 9 or 10 feet are almost always female.

This would only be true if the Males were 'stunted' for some reason (habitat, feeding grounds) since males grow markedly larger than the females.

Maybe its males that 'identify' with being female. You know......you can 'be' whatever you want to be these days....it seems. wink
