No words, no songs... Just the sights and sounds you might see if you were there yourself for a day and a half:



In case you are on the fence, the video includes gators on the move, an owl, a turtle laying eggs, and the sounds of gators bellowing towards the end of the clip.

Almost forgot, if you prefer pics:

Enjoy! :)

Nice Rey... everyone should plan a trip to BBSP. It looks like it's recovered from the drought pretty nicely

Thanks for the cool video... Reminded me one time I was out there a few years ago and there were a LOT of nutria. The last couple times I went there were a lot more gators than before, but NO nutria in sight!  :eusa_whistle:

We actually saw something big and black run across the road... If I were in Big Bend, I'd swear it was a small black bear. In this case though, I'm thinking wild pig.

While we didn't see any nutria, we did also see three bobcats. One of 'em was a LARGE cat, second only to the one James and I saw back at RGV in BBNP some time ago now.

I was inspired enough by your pics and video to take the wife and daughter out to BBSP for a nice breezy Saturday afternoon of gator gazin'. Haven't had the chance to get any online yet, but here's a teaser.
