Alligator carries new hatchlings in adorable video

A video was recently shared on Facebook of an 8-foot alligator carrying its newly hatched young into the water.

Earlier this week, the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (ODWC) posted the footage which showed a giant alligator working hard to care for its young.

In a Facebook post, the ODWC explained that the 8-foot alligator had been building a 6-foot nest since July in the Red Slough Wildlife Management Area in McCurtain County, Oklahoma.

“He guarded the nest until August and then spent 13 hours digging up the 22 hatchlings and taking them, bite by bite, to nearby water,” reads the alligator’s Facebook post.

The ODWC added that researchers have been monitoring the alligator’s nest and hatchlings.

In the video included in the Facebook post, the alligator can be seen carrying its young from the nest.

According to the comments, Facebook users seemed impressed by the clip.

“Great to see nature doing what it was meant to do,” one person wrote.

Another said: “This is awesome, thanks for showing us! Many reptiles don’t bother with their parents at all, so it’s quite interesting that one of the largest and most “terrifying” reptiles does. Was fun to see.”

Although American alligators are not distributed throughout the state of Oklahoma, they are found in the southeast corner of the state, particularly in remote, swampy areas, according to the ODWC on its website.
