Have you ever seen an alligator's back and thought it was a log? If you have, you could have ben in the Okefenokee Swamp. The Okefenokee Swamp is so large, it covers part of southern Georgia, and part of northern Florda in the U.S. I have always found intest in the extraordinary plants, and animals that live there and how they survive. They must have a way of protecting them selves from alligators.


I'll be the first to admit, how gorgeous the Okefenokee Swamp is. The Okefenokee swamp has glossy lilly pads floating above the murkey waters of the swamp. Trees sprout up above the water streching for sunlight. There are frogs hopping from place to place, as alligators glide gracefully through the swampy water. Pitcher plants, Bladderwort, and Sun Dew sprout up from the damp soil.

There's no doubt that the Okefenokee swamp was formed by erosion. The erosion that was used to form the Okefenokee swamp was waetering by water. The Okefenokee swamp was also formed by a basin. The basin was shaped like a saucer. The basin then filled up with water.


Obviously, I have not been to this glorious swamp. You can aso tell I would love to go. I have only seen this swamp in photos. I would highly suggest for you to travel there. Be carefull with aligators though, they bite ya know.


When all is said and done, the Okefenokee swamp is beautifull, large, and extraordinary. People should defetly travel there. they won't be disappointed. They'll see out standing plants and animals such as alligators and lilly pads. They will also see how the ecosystiem works. People will love the Okefenokee swamp!
