Caption   An American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) basks in afternoon sunlight on the La Chua Trail, in Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park, Florida. Sunlight illuminates the inside of the alligator's pink mouth. The alligator blocked the trail to human traffic for about 45 minutes before finally lumbering into a nearby pond.
