GOOD QUESTION! You always want to keep an eye out for her.



This was the gator guarding the nursery last year. I did not see any large ones Saturday when I took the long hike back there......

From what I understand Gators are breeding in the wild just fine... so why the need for a nursery?

Hope this answers your question.....


Nursery | Definition of nursery by Merriam-Webster

Full Definition of NURSERY
1obsolete : attentive care : fosterage
2a : a child's bedroom
b : a place where children are temporarily cared for in their parents' absence
c : day nursery
3a : something that fosters, develops, or promotes
b : a place in which persons are trained or educated
4: an area where plants are grown for transplanting, for use as stocks for budding and grafting, or for sale
5: a place where young animals grow or are cared for


See item #5.
These are pictures of wild alligators. The nursery was formed when the cow brought her hatchlings to the water. She is watching over them.
I did not mean to infer that anyone was raising alligators.
