Casey Anderson uses his wildlife skills deep in the heart of Florida's swamps to learn about America's top cold-blooded predator - the American alligator. On the bayou, Casey quickly learns the #1 rule: where there's water, there are probably alligators. But alligators and crocodiles aren't the only predators out here; while exploring in the Everglades, Casey wrangles the King of the Everglades - a Burmese python, which can grow to 20 feet in length.
