Description

The Iconic Animal of Florida and the Everglades

Everglades National Park is the southern extreme locale in the territory of the American alligator, and is home to such threatened and endangered species. This picture is a great representative of the Everglades as it is captured here on a Worldwide Gifts fridge magnet. The American alligator is quite at home in this region, so its photo is a great souvenir from Florida.

The American alligator makes its home around the mangrove swamps and sawgrass wetlands of the Everglades National Park. They burrow out dens along creekbeds and amongst the mangrove roots, where they shelter and lay their eggs. In winter they use their "alligator holes" for aestivation, which is similar to hibernation. Baby alligators have yellow stripes to help camouflage them from predator, which fades away as they mature and grow up to fifteen feet. Alligators eat fish, turtles, birds and other reptiles including small alligators.

Other Threatened and Endangered Species in the Everglades

This protected nature reserve is the habitat for many rare species of animals, birds and plants. The American alligator isn't the only large reptile to live in the Everglades National Park. It is one of the few places in the world where alligators and crocodiles live together, and the American crocodile is another threatened species.

The Florida black panther is an endangered animal that lives in the Everglades, as is the West Indian Manatee. Some of the threatened and endangered birds at home in Everglades National Park are the Wood Stork, the Snail Kite, and the Red Cockaded Woodpecker. Loggerhead turtles and leatherback turtles are protected here, and so is the Key Largo Cotton Mouse. The Swallowtail Butterfly is another endangered species that is protected in the International Biosphere Reserve at the Everglades National Park in Florida.
