Alligator Mississippiensi
Alligator Profile
The refuge is one of the northernmost Mississippi places to see alligators! During the spring, the sound of migrating songbirds is complimented by the bellow of alligators in search of a mate. Spring and fall are the best times to catch sight of these reptiles sunning themselves on the banks, logs or travelling across the lakes.
