Description
WFSU-TV reporter Diane Hoffman interviews E.E. Calaway, author of "In the Beginning," who claims that Florida's Torreya State Park is the biblical Garden of Eden. Mr. Callaway recites passages from the Bible that describe the mystical garden and compares them to features along the Apalachicola River. He attests that two features of the landscape prove his claim. The first is that the Apalachicola River is the only river in the world with four heads. The second is the presence of the gopherwood tree, which Noah used to build the ark. According to Callaway, the Bible claims that both elements were unique to the legendary garden and they are unique to Torreya State Park. Produced by WFSU-TV.

Description
This film is part two of a two-part program on Florida's most recognized reptile. Part two deals with the results of human encroachment into the alligator's habitat. Concern for alligator population led to the addition of the alligator to the endangered species list. However, complaints of nuisance alligators and population growth caused them to be removed from the list after only few years of federal protection. John and Roland Denise, former poachers turned state-sanctioned "gator hunters," are shown on a hunting trip. Roland proudly displays a large axe he calls a "convincer" because it helps convince alligators to get into his boat. Ecologist Roy MacDiarmid of the University of South Florida and Dr. Archie Carr of the University of Florida scorn the Florida Game Commission's decision to allow the sale of alligator hides gathered by hunters.
