Alligators


Alligators have been around since the age of dinosaurs. They can grow up to 20 feet long and can reach weights of more than half a ton. Wild alligators have a natural fear of people, however, when people feed them they associate humans with food and lose their fear. It is very important not to feed or approach alligators.
Alligators are cold-blooded animals. This means that their body temperatures adjust to surrounding temperatures. When cold, they may become inactive and will search for a sunny area or dig down into the mud under water. Alligators are generally more active when the weather is warm.

Only the alligator's head and part of its back are visible above the water when an alligator swims at the surface. This makes it easier for an alligator to approach its prey undetected. Foods an alligator may eat include fish, turtles, mammals, birds, dead animals and other alligators.

Alligators are native to only two countries: the United States and China.The majority of American Alligators inhabit Florida and Louisiana, with over a million alligators in each state.

Olympic National Park


Olympic National Park, in the northwest corner of Washington state, is like a giant jigsaw puzzle of people, wildlife, plants and many habitats. Nearly a million acres of forests, mountains, lakes, rivers and coast are protected for the enjoyment of visitors.

The first residents of the Olympics were American Indians. Both men and women worked on important tasks. The men hunted for elk, bear and deer, and fished for salmon. Using dugout cedar canoes, some tribes hunted for whales in the Pacific Ocean. The women had equally important tasks of gathering berries and collecting cedar bark, sometimes using canoes for transportation. They spent many hours weaving cedar bark into baskets and clothing, including conical hats to shed the rain. Women cooked over an open fire, which vented through a hole in the roof of the cedar long house.
