Capturing an alligator close-up on video is a brave task! In this case neither the cinemtographer or the alligator were camera shy! Get up close and personal as this alligator attacks the camera! NatureFootage originally posted the alligator video for World Wetlands Day! Wetlands provide habitat to many animals including this alligators. Wetlands are crucial habitat for many animals, they protect our drinking water, and help regulate climate change. We need to protect our wetlands! NatureFootage contributor: Andy Brandy Casagrande IV.
