Louisiana began an alligator ranching program in 1986 which allows individuals to collect alligator eggs on private lands and incubate and hatch those eggs under artificial conditions. The farmers then raise these alligators until they reach 1m in length. At this time, the farmer has to return a percentage of the animals back to the wild. The remaining percentage can be sold by the farmer.
We were lucky, on our trip we were accompanied by some of these youngsters that were brought back to the swamps. Before they were put in the water, we had the opportunity to touch and hold them. What an experience!
