Audubon Swamp Garden, Charleston County, SC
Part of the Magnolia Plantation, this used to be a rice-farming area. But today it looks like a real garden, complete with grass and flowers. But the "grass" is really duckweed and water meal and there are American Alligators here and there, resting on boards specially constructed for them, with any available space taken up by Yellowbelly Sliders. There are many interesting birds, not all of them aquatic.
See the live map at the bottom of the page.
