We saw many alligators this size or larger at the Santee NationalWildlife Refuge at our stop in South Carolina on the trip home. We took a 4 mile bike ride around the refuge and at one section we heard a loud splash. When we looked at the water there were 6 pairs of eyes and one alligator swimming along.( The one that made the splash I think). We then started seeing alligators to the right and left, all along the strip of land we were riding on. We didn't have our camera, so the next morning we went back and took this one.
