You know we’ve advanced technologically when even alligators are wearing GPS!
Reviewing my photographs from a November, 2021 trip to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, I noticed a large black lump on the back of an alligator. If I had not seen an article on the subject, I would have thought it was a tumor or other growth. But I had read an article from the University of Georgia about the tracking and studying of alligator movements in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. Researchers from the UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant are using satellite tags to track the movements of adult alligators.
