An alligator playing hide-and-seek in the duckweed.

My family and I visited the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans, LA. We came up on the swamp exhibit and were disappointed because there were no alligators or so we thought. We then saw this large alligator slowly surface out from under the duckweed. He would then sink back down to hide under the duckweed again.
