Florida Day 5

I am sharing some photos taken during our Florida trip, this is Day 5.  Due to another morning activity we just had the afternoon at Gatorland in Kissimmee.


Do not worry the gators do not eat tourists.


 A few of Gatorland's alligators.


The Breeding Marsh is all about the Herons, Egrets, Wood Storks and Anhinga.


A view of the rookery and the lookout tower.


Egrets at the breeding area of Gatorland.


A view of the breeding marsh from the top of the tower. Gatorland is a popular tourist attraction in Kissimmee.  My main reason for visiting there was to see all the birds and their nest..  I hope you enjoyed this quick look at Gatorland.
