Inspired by the 2-year-old American Alligator (now named Phillip) who lives under my studio! During the meteor showers earlier this year I was able to capture a night photograph of him with the stars and I just had to illustrate it!
Juvenile Alligators spend the majority of their life hunting insects, frogs and small fish in shallow wetland areas, usually among cypress trees and lily pads. It will be another 10 years before our little Phillip reaches his potential of 10-12 feet in length!
Alligators are awesome, and I wanted to connect you with just one more amazing species on our planet!
