Alligator hatchling

Local photographer, Victoria Wright, snapped a picture of this alligator hatchling. There are typically 20 to 50 hatchlings per nest. The hatchling will lose its yellow stripes as it matures. The stripes are temporary camouflage for blending in with marsh grasses. Photo by Victoria Wright
