The white-tailed deer of the Everglades are the same as those found throughout the United States, however they are smaller, because they do not need an extra layer of fat for winter. White-tailed deer are omnivores and eat about 4 lbs of plants a day. These deer can be found feeding in open sawgrass and bedding in hardwood hammock habitats.

There aren't many places in the world like the Florida Everglades. From its wild mangroves and giant alligators, to its shallow bays, remote keys, reflective waters and towering sawgrass, the Everglades are equal parts interesting and mysterious. Enjoy zipping through watery alleys lined with swaying sawgrass and peering into the dark marsh for a glimpse of wildlife—birds, insects, snakes, turtles, and gators.

One of the Everglades' remarkable attractions is its tremendous collection of birds. The great, or American, egret is readily identifiable with its yellow beak and black legs, and is one of the larger birds in the park standing between 37 and 41 inches high.

How many teeth do alligators have? An adult alligator has between 74 and 84 teeth in its mouth. Alligators don't chew and their teeth aren't particularly sharp, but taken together, they are very effective. If a tooth wears down or breaks off, a new one grows to take its place. It is believed that alligators go through 2,000 to 3,000 teeth in a lifetime.
