Checking out a Swamp. The Bayou Sauvage National Wildlive Refuge is within the New Orleans city limits.
All sorts of animals and birds, including plenty of alligators.
A demonstration from our tour guide on crocodile hunting. This baby croc was immediately released into its natural habitat.
If you're like me, from the big city, then it's not very often that you get to see the swamps and gators! You'll also probably see some egrets and turtles along the way.
You might see alligators, as well. Our tour leader claimed to know all of them by name.
Though I forgot how this one was called...
