[Zim’s Note: I came across these photos a few months ago. After debating what to post today, I suddenly thought of these photos of men catching alligators. The majority of the comments I receive from readers is that they enjoy not knowing what will be posted from day to day. That is something I have come to love and embrace about History By Zim. The seemingly randomness of everything. If I want to post about Chuck Norris advertising jeans or an invention that gives people dimples, I will in a heartbeat. So I encourage you, my fellow History By Zim’ers or Zimites, embrace the randomness because history is full of it!]
These men, and a boy, were part of 1925 zoological expedition to Southern Georgia. Their purpose was to collect material about the American Alligator, their nests and eggs to be part of a Zoology Reptiles diorama.
