Captured this American Alligator sunning on the Big Slough Trail at Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge near Houston Texas along the coast. This alligator was very near the bridge as your cross the marsh to the Big Slough Hiking Trail. My estimate would be right at 9-10 feet or maybe even a little larger. This was by far the biggest alligator I saw on the day. As I crossed the footbridge over the marsh, I passed within about 8 feet of this monster who was definately keeping an eye on me the entire time and I was definately watching him!
