ZZ Ninja Kid: Planes, Trains, Autos & Boats #15 Chasing Gators, Everglades Airboat
Chasing Gators in the Everglades
Very cool day speeding around the Everglades on an Airboat, looking for Alligators.
I cant believe how many we saw lurking in the water with just their eyes peeking out at us.
The Airboat threw some serious 360º spins, I was sitting right at the front and got soaked with smelly water every time we spun round, I had to hold onto Mama so I didn’t fall out !
The engine is really noisy, Ninja Grandma wore headphones to block the noise but she still didn’t enjoy it much because she thought we were going to fall in the swamp and end up as lunch for the Gators!
Afterwards I held one of the baby gators at the rescue centre. Its back is hard & scaly but the skin under its tummy is much softer than I imagined. It has lots of really sharp teeth but they put a muzzle on it while I held it, just incase.
For the 2 of us we paid $40 USD for a 45 minute airboat ride.
