Storyline

The Alligator Farm is a very interesting picture; thousands of little reptiles, about six inches long, are climbing over one another in the improvised pond. Next we see them three or four feet long; they are wicked looking things, but the keepers handle them without fear. When handled, the alligator will try hard to give the keeper a bite, but the man is too quick, taking the top and under jaw between his hands be quickly closed the wicked looking mouth and then he will in sport pull the reptile's tail as it tries to scamper into the pool. One big fellow is probably eight feet long. The keeper gives him a jolt, but the crocodile is sleepy and in a few seconds is again innocent of all that is going on in the farm.
