Prehistoric Looking on the Refuge

Caption: Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge is one of the northernmost U.S.  regions of breeding and residence for the American alligator (Alligator mississipiensis).  Growing up to 16 feet and living up to 50 years, the American alligator truly looks prehistoric. Often calm and sluggish acting, these creatures can move lightning fast when they get the urge.
Summer season refuge interpretive trips run June through August. Programs are scheduled at Pea Island & Alligator River National Wildlife Refuges. Go online to see trips days, times, locations, and descriptions, Guided canoe, van, tram, bear and bird tours, plus much more. Some programs are free!
