Alligator Feeding Frenzy

We live in Florida where we get plenty of alligators, but I have never seen anything like this. This video was taken July 10, 2010 at Stephen C. Foster State Park near Fargo, Ga. of Okefenokee Swamp gators participating in a rare feeding ritual.

Alligators at Stephen C. Foster State Park (Video length: 0:58)

From The Clinch County News:

Ray Cason was expecting an ordinary day fishing when he dipped his boat into the black water at Stephen C. Foster State Park last Saturday at sunrise. But the next few minutes proved to be anything but ordinary. What Cason, of Homerville, witnessed, and caught on video and film, is a rare phenomenon that some call cooperative feeding, or cooperative fishing. In this case, hundreds of alligators congregated in the boat basin at Stephen C. Foster State Park, near Fargo, and the canal from the boat basin to Billy’s Lake, and engaged in what Cason called “a feeding frenzy.”

Anyone up for a swim?
