Eye See You by mydigitalmind Eye See You by mydigitalmind
An alligator watches the zoo spectators from behind glass. Not sure which species it is - the signs said the exhibit had American and Chinese Alligators, but this doesn't look like either of them.

Location: Staten Island Zoo, New York
Lens: Canon EF 70-200 F4 L IS USM

It looks like a Caiman..or perhaps a very young Alligator? Younger ones have shorter snouts and more prominent eyes..

I believe it's a Chinese, Americans don't have the reddish color.

Thanks :) I knew for sure that it was not American, I was just unsure if maybe they did not label all of the gators in the enclosure.

Haha. I could do that now that I have the T1i. But the enclosure for him went all the way up.

And thank you!
