The activity in the dens seems to go in cycles and things were pretty quiet today. Could be because the weather was a bit cooler (23F) but it could just be a day of needed rest. Lily became active early this evening when she reached up out of sight of the cam to retrieve icicles. The cubs played quietly behind her as she crunched ice.
Another Cajun food secret: a tour guide said that alligator tail meat in restaurants is from farm-raised gators that eat a lot of chickens, so their meat tastes like chicken, but the meat of wild alligators is more fishy.
Thank you for all you do.
