More Babies

So cute and slimy. Dr Guilette studies the reproductive system of female alligators and their very close similarities to the female human reproductive system. Fascinating to say the least. He has a few clutches hatching now and I got to shoot them. They are actually very soft when first born and they have umbilical cords just little baby people do. So "yes" alligators have belly buttons.



Umbilical cord still attached to the egg.
