Alligators are truly amazing creatures. We are so blessed to still see them all around South Carolina (like the Alligator Adventure and Huntington State Park in Myrtle Beach or Charles Towne Landing and Audubon Swamp Garden in Charleston, or Edisto Island Serpentarium in Edisto).
Just recently, Business Week published an article underscoring once more their excellent survival skills and importance to the human race. Apparently, alligators have super-potent proteins in their blood with the ability to fight off fungi, viruses and drug resistant super-bugs.
Researchers unleashed these proteins on 23 different strains of disease carrying bacteria. All of them were killed - a feat unequaled by any known human blood protein!
This post is an ode to one of the most magnificent and ancient animal on Earth. “You’re alright mate! You’re alright”…
Keep watching, respecting and protecting the South Carolina alligators!
