- Photograph of a drawing by William Bartram of two alligators in the St. Johns River
- Bottom figure represents the action of this terrible monster when they bellow in the Spring Season. They force the water out of their throat which falls from their mouth like a Cataract and a steam or vapour from their nostrils like smoke.
- The top figure represents them rising up out of the water when they devour the fish. From the standpoint of natural history, perhaps the most important drawing ever executed by Bartram.
- 1 photograph - b&w - 8 x 10 in.
