Alligators Song and Dance Mating Ritual

Imagine walking through the swamps of Florida and hearing a deep, resonant bellow echoing across the water.

No, it’s not a mythical swamp monster; it’s the call of a male alligator in search of love.

During mating season, male alligators perform a captivating ritual...

that involves a unique combination of sounds and movements.

Once a female alligator shows interest, the courtship moves to the next level.

She lays between 20 to 50 eggs and covers them with more vegetation.

Interestingly, the temperature within the nest determines the sex of the offspring.

Alligators are not monogamous; both males and females may have multiple partners in a single mating season.
