Grab Fantastic Photos On A New Orleans Alligator Tour

April 30, 2019

With summer fast approaching, the days are getting longer and the temperature is climbing. With all this extra sun, our gators and other animals are coming out more. That also means that it’s the perfect time to grab some amazing tour photos! Come join us in Bayou Barataria to capture those memories forever. Take a ride on a New Orleans alligator tour with the Adventures of Jean Lafitte.

Fun Gator Facts

The weather is warming up. As a result, the alligators are more active now. Our resident reptiles love the sun and can’t get enough of it. This is because reptiles are cold-blooded, they have no internal way to heat themselves up as we do.

So to begin, we’d like to make the point that alligators are not the same as crocodiles. While they both look similar, there are a few key differences. For example, alligators tend to have darker bodies and rounded snouts. However, we have to say the key difference is their mouths. When an alligator closes its mouth, all of its upper teeth are visible.

The longest documented alligator was discovered in 1890 in Louisiana. This huge reptile measured at 19.2 feet and weighed nearly 2,000 pounds! However, most gators tend to top out around 13 feet and can be about 800 pounds on average.

To find out more about these creatures, you’ll have to join us on a New Orleans alligator tour!

What Can You Hope To See In The Bayou?

Bayou Barataria offers much more than just gators in her waters! Look out for these creatures of the swamp:

Just like the gators, the other animals adore getting out for some Louisiana sunlight. On the other hand, if you happen to be more interested in our flora, make sure to look out for:

  • Cypress Trees
  • Spanish Moss
  • Louisiana Irises
  • Swamp Rosemallow
  • Cattails
  • And much more!

Very few of these can be found outside the state, so be sure to snap a few photos when you get the chance. We can’t wait to see what you capture. If you upload any to Instagram make sure to tag us—@advofjeanlafitte!
