feeding the alligators

This morning we went on a swamp tour. The best thing there was watching the tour guide feed the alligators marshmallows and lady fingers (hot dogs). We also saw baby turtles, blue herons, egrets and some more hurricane Katrina destruction. I wish we could have seen the male alligator because it is about 20 feet long. We only saw females which grow up 8 feet long. All of the baby alligators stay away from the female alligator named black jaw because the females sometimes eat the babies. There were no misquitos there because they get eaten by the all the dragonflies that fly around. After that we drove into Missisippi to the Natchez Trace. The Natchez Trace is an Indian trail that leads from Natchez Mississippi to Nashville Tenn. that was used for trading and to carry information. Like yesterday it started to pour rain in the afternoon. We are staying in Jackson, Mississippi tonight.
