This alligator ( I call her Lady ) is a large 12' female alligator that I and my customers have viewed many times over the years. She is getting old now and doesn't show herself as often but if luck is with us maybe you can see her and witness what I consider one of the greatest creatures on Caddo Lake!
Viewing alligators in the daytime is difficult here on Caddo. The gators tend to shy away from humans when they hear a boat coming and most often they will just go under and wait for you to leave. Night time is by far better for seeing gators. For one, they are nocturnal by nature and thats when they feed. Secondly, they aren't as skittish at night and they don't perceive the light we shine as being as big of threat. Thirdly, with a spot light you can spot one a long ways away because their eyes glow really good when you shine a light at them. Guess what has bright red eyes when you shine a light at it? Yep the alligator.
