  1. I actually think that this is a crocodile - which if true would be an amazing sighting for Florida as there are very few crocodiles there. Was this really the everglades? Posted 3 years ago
    1. I'm as sure as it gets. I took this photograph on a boat trip in the Everglades. Didn't know there were only very few crocodiles there Posted 3 years ago

The American crocodile is a species of crocodilian found in the Neotropics. It is the most widespread of the four extant species of crocodiles from the Americas. Populations occur from the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of southern Mexico to South America as far as Peru and Venezuela. It also lives within many river systems on Cuba, Jamaica, and Hispaniola. Within the United States the American crocodile is only found within the southern half of Florida.
