The American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis), also known as a gator, can grow up to 4.6 m (15.1 ft) in length and weigh up to 453 kg (999 lb). It’s native to southeastern United States and northeastern Mexico and inhabits freshwater wetlands such as marshes and swamps. Alligators can move the position of their lungs to adjust buoyancy levels when diving or rolling in the water.

All the alligators in this collection were photographed in the swamps of Florida, including the Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve and Corkscrew Swamp.
