Gators bellowing makes water dance at Green Pond wildlife preserve

This video shows a large number of alligators bellowing, courtesy of Christine Smith Photography. It was recorded on the morning of May 24, 2015, at Donnelly Wildlife Management Area in Green Pond, S.C. Close up video shows the water literally dance at the gators' backs and sides because of the vocalization and infrasound emitted by the gators to attract mates and declare territory.

Gone gator: Alligator that killed husky captured

On Monday, March 28, 2016, Joe Maffo, of Critter Management on Hilton Head Island, and his grandson, Joey, 15, caught the alligator suspected of killing a husky at Indigo Run on March 16. The gator, which was to be killed on Monday, was a 7-foot male, about 100 pounds, and 18 to 20 years old, Maffo said. The alligator had definitely been fed in the past, he said.

Tagged makos making tracks to SC coast

A pair of North Atlantic mako sharks tagged by researchers studying their migratory patterns seem to have an affinity for each other — and, lately, the Carolinas coast. Researchers at the Guy Harvey Research Institute at Nova Southeastern University have found makos make extremely long journeys. The two sharks now hanging off the Carolinas, named Bruce and Matt J. after their tag sponsors, were captured together 10 months ago near Ocean City, Md. Since then, each has swum more than 4,000 miles, mostly off the northern East Coast. Now, however, they have turned south and have wound up very close together.
