Baby Alligators

Baby alligators are little, cute and seemingly helpless. Babies upto a year old are called hatchlings. After birth, the hatchling alligators form groups called “pods”. Mother alligators are very protective of offspring, which may stay near her for up 2 years. Adult females alligators with nests or babies are often aggressive toward human intruders. Bigger animals like herons, turtles, large fish and large alligators will eat a baby alligator. Young alligators’ diets consist of small animals such as insects, crawfish, small fish, frogs, etc. The mortality is high and only about 10-20% of all hatchlings will survive to become breeders at 6 to 8 feet. An alligator is a crocodilian in the genus Alligator of the family Alligatoridae. They grow about one foot per year, reaching an adult length of 4 to 7 feet, and can live more than 70 years. Male alligators tend to be larger than their female counter parts. Alligators are only native to the United States and China. Cute little guys, for sure…
