Here he is at last, the alligator! You captured him beautifully, Ryan! Was this taken in a zoo or Sea World? It's a great shot! Cheers, Anne

Thanks Anne! It was not very difficult, since they just float in the small pond near the walkway. Sea World is basically just a fancy zoo, with a few animal shows as well. Cheers, Ryan

That's what I thought, Ryan! But still it's nice to see them! A long time ago, I visited Sea World in San Diego. As far as I remember, there were no crocodiles there but animal shows (dolphins and whales). I felt sorry for them being kept in captivity. Cheers, Anne

I don't know if the San Diego park has changed since then, I've never been there. The Orlando park is the largest of the three, so they have more space for more animals. They have all kinds of sea creatures, plus birds, plus some water rides and a roller coaster. But the dolphin and orca shows are the main tourist attractions.
