Filming Alligator Stock Video Footage

Filming alligators takes a lot of patience for the animal seems to spend 99% of its life doing nothing, just laying around and resting. However, when the action happens it can be fast. Therefore, to make sure you don't miss the action its best to have a pre-record cache on your camcorder or have a tapeless system and just keep it running and delete all the non-action later.

Where hunted alligators can become quite intolerant of people. Not surprisingly, the best places to film are in national parks and national wildlife refuges. Everglades National Park and Big Cypress Preserve in southern Florida are two of the best places.

The story of the North American alligator is well known. At one time they were on the verge of extinction due to overhunting. The last few animals found refuge in the deep recesses of Everglades National Park and a few other protected areas. With protection under the Endangered Species Act this iconic species made a rapid recovery. They are now found throughout almost all of their historic range. (However, in some areas they are still protected because of their similarity to the American crocodile, a very rare species found in southern Florida.)
