On my way back to Deerfield Beach from South Bay Campground, I met my friend Pam and we took an airboat ride through the Everglades, after which we walked around the zoo they had on the premises. Photo album.
In the zoo area, the park attendants offered to let people hold a baby alligator, for a $2 donation. I did not want to hold one, even for free. They did have it’s mouth taped closed so it would not be able to bite, but I still had no desire to do it. I took a picture of someone else holding it.
