07-Gator Eggs 21 mw 071907.JPG
Carl Nettles scoops away vegatation and thousands of fire ants that cover and incubate the alligator eggs that he and Wayne "Hoho" Brooks are preparing to harvest at Lake Miccosukee July 19, 2007.  Besides the fire ants, the egg harvesters have to contend with angry female alligators, poisonous snakes, wasps, hornets and other creatures that favor the alligator nests and surrounding vegetation and water.  Nettles wound up with a couple of dozen fire ant bites after harvesting the eggs.
