The Alligator Farm is a fascinating zoological park filled with alligators and crocodiles from all parts of the world. But the best part is the outdoor lagoon where hundreds of wading birds come to nest every spring. They seem to know that the gators keep other predators away from their nests. Occasionally a chick may fall and become a snack but the percentage of chicks that mature is far greater than the average in other unprotected rookeries. It's a photographer's dream!
