In the middle of an interview about how much fun they were having on their spring break trip, biology students Rose Zandvliet and Chris Addis paused in Florida’s Bird Rookery Swamp, peering warily at the reflective eyes of a well-known inhabitant of the Florida swamp—an 11-foot-long adult American alligator, swimming only a few feet away.
Remembering what they had learned about amphibians and reptiles in this semester’s herpetology class, Zandvliet (CAS’15) and Addis (CAS’14) remained calm (unlike the BU Today crew).
