Juvenile male American Alligator at a fund raising rescue, preservation and educational event in my area. Eastern Pennsylvania. (Took the photo after speaking with the owner/handler about safety issues and letting the animal get comfortable with my presence.) This was the first time I have been ever so close to an alligator. Unsure of size. But maybe around 3 feet long. P.S. His name is Apollo. Just wait until he grows up. Yikes!
