Gator Glance

Gator Glance
By: Bryan Selent, Amy Andollo, and Tyler Stevens

During our in-house field trip called Everglades Reach we rotated to a center named Gator Glance. At this center the materials we used were: a gator skull, a turtle skeleton, the carapace (top) and the plastron (bottom) of a turtle and a measuring tape with which to measure the turtle shell. At Gator Glance we learned that if someone measures a gator's head or skull from the very tip of the nose to the bridge of the eyes, the measured inches is turned into feet and that tells the length of the gator. We also counted the teeth of a gator and found out they have 80 teeth. Another activity we participated in was restoring a broken's shell then measuring the shell.
