The American alligator lays 20 to 50 white eggs, about the size of a goose egg. The female covers them with decaying vegetation, which produces heats needed for incubation. The temperature at which American alligator eggs develop determines their sex. Those eggs which are hatched at a temperature of 34 °C (93 °F) or more become males, while those at a temperature of 32 °C (86 °F) or lower become female. In general, the nests built on levees are warmer and thus produce males, while the cooler nests of wet marsh produce females. The female remains near the nest throughout the 65 day incubation period, protecting it from predators. When the young begin to hatch the mother digs them out and carries the hatchlings to the water in her mouth.

The hatching of American alligators can last for days and the hatchlings have to make use of their sharp egg tooth to cut through the hard egg shell. Eventually, the egg shell becomes bridle and brakes apart due to the hatchling’s constant scratching. This is truly an exhausting task for any baby alligator. Hence, the hatchlings take periodically naps to regain new energy before braking through the shell. The hatching of american alligator was filmed by Heiko Kiera in 2010.

Female alligators guard their nests well and throughout the entire incubation period but they are not always around when their babies hatch. In particular when the female alligator carries some of her hatchlings to a distant water hole. Predators are quick to detect an unprotected nest and even raccoons kits will use every opportunity to feed on the alligator’s eggs. Sometimes the raccoon is lucking to plunder an unprotected nest but if the alligator mother returns, the young raccoon will be in danger of being eaten themselves. raccoon kits eat alligator eggs was filmed by Heiko Kiera in 2010.

South Florida has proved to be the perfect home for large reptiles from other tropical parts of the world. For example, the Burmese python, a native of Southeast Asia, has taken root in the Everglades over the last several decades. Therefore, it’s not surprising that a few Nile crocodiles (crocodylus niloticus) have been reported patrolling Florida’s swamps. But it’s still unclear if the Nile crocodiles are breeding in the wild. Florida law requires croc keepers to have a permit and report any animals that escape. To date, only four incidents have been reported and they may correspond to the four individuals identified by scientists. If they have established a population, getting rid of them may prove to be a bureaucratic nightmare. The Nile crocodile is protected by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service under the Endangered Species Act. Special permission has to be obtained to move or euthanize individual crocs–even though they’re in a non-native habitat. Nile crocodiles in Florida was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro and is available at www.Ojatrovisuals.com

I’ve filmed american alligators on many occasions over the last years but I can’t say these apex predators targeting humans, except when driven by hunger, curiosity or during the alligator mating season. The mating season is a particular dangerous time to venture into alligator territory for any creature. Their behavior changes dramatically, they become highly aggressive and won’t hesitate charging after any intruder, including humans. I’ve been chased by alligators during such filming on several occasions but without any serious consequences. It’s always a good idea to keep your senses on constant alert when entering alligator habitat. Also, please don’t forget that alligators do not just live in the swamps or large water areas. Adult alligators can be found even in narrow road side channels, hiding in their “Gator Holes” but sensing any movements in its vicinity. An alligator is a crocodilian in the genus Alligator of the family Alligatoridae. There are two living alligator species: the American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) and the Chinese Alligator (Alligator sinensis). Swimming with alligators was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro in Florida in 2016.

The burmese python has been incubating her eggs for five weeks now. All together it will take 60 days for the hatchlings to fully develop. During night time when the temperature drops, she will have to stay constantly coiled around the eggs to keep them warm. But night time is also the time when most predators are on the hunt for food and tonight she seems alert and nervous. Investigating the smallest movement near her nest until she discovers something lurking in the darkness.

With a swift bite she tries to scare off the intruder, a harmless Florida box turtle.
The box turtle is endemic to Florida. Its distinct shell with a hinged plastron offers ample protection from most predators. After recovering from the python’s attack, the turtle continues searching for food and purposefully cruising around the snake’s lair. Finally, the turtle decides to move in with the large python. But the snake won’t have non of it and blocks the entrance, which doesn’t stop the turtle at all.

Gopher tortoises share their burrows frequently with many snakes, including the venomous easter diamondback rattlesnake. But the python has to protect her eggs and the sharp claws of the turtle could easily damage them. At the moment she has no choice and accepts unwillingly the turtle’s intrusion. Soon the python grows agitated again, when the turtles scuffles with the bufo toad which moved in two weeks prior. The toad wants the turtle gone and so does the snake.

Relentlessly pushing and showing, the python finally is able to remove the turtle from its lair. The toad is wasting no time and returns to the safety of the den immediately. Turtles can be willful creatures and this one has a mind of her own. Nevertheless, a strike from a furious python settles the matter once and for all. The indigenous turtle got ..

Filming pythons hatching can be very time consuming. The python hatchlings will poke their heads through the leathery egg shell repeatedly, tasting the air and than disappear back into the safety of the egg. Still, one gets rewarded when the unusual happens in front of the camera. Python hatchlings leave their nest soon after hatching, but some hatchling linger for some time and to my surprise two hatchlings got agitated and began fighting each other into a tight coil. The fight lasted for ca. twenty minutes and no hatchling was injured or killed. They simply separated and went of in different directions. I still don’t know why the snakes were fighting but it was an interesting scene to film nevertheless. Pythons hatching was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro in South Florida in 2014.

Burmese pythons breed in the early spring, with females laying clutches of 10–60 eggs in March or April. They remain with the eggs until they hatch, wrapping around them and twitching their muscles in such a way as to raise the ambient temperature around the eggs by several degrees. Once the hatchlings use their egg tooth to cut their way out of their eggs, no further maternal care is given. The newly hatched often remain inside their eggs until they are ready to complete their first shedding of skin, after which they hunt for their first meal. The python will not feed during the two months of incubation but the female will on high alert, attack and kill potential prey such as rodents if such approach the python’s nest. Everglades Python Incubating was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro in South Florida in 2016.

According to official reports, Africanized honeybees arrive in Florida in a Brazilian cargo ship in 2001. Labeled by the media as “Killer Bees” due to fetal attacks on humans, pets and live stock in recent years. The invasive bee species have inbred with many of Florida’s domestic honey bees as well as Florida’s feral honey bee populations since and are difficult to distinguish today.

Feral honey bees prefer to build their nest in a secure location such as a tree, a roof or inside a wall. But wherever the queen lands, her colony will follow, settle down and begin building their nest immediately. Sometimes feral honey bees settle into a location not well enough hidden from predators such as the Florida back bear, who will plunder any beehive not just for its honey but the protein provided by the bee larvae as well. Regardless, the bees have chosen well this time. Residing within close proximity of a large burmese python incubating her own eggs and aggressive enough to attack anyone daring to approach her lair.

This never before seen footage provides a unique inside look into the behavior of two invasive species in Florida. Feral honey bees have been know to attack and kill larger animals such as dogs and horses frequently, yet these aggressive insects tolerate the presents of a huge burmese python right next to their own beehive. The python has been incubating her eggs for almost two months when the bees decided to move in. She could leave her nest, since her young will hatch any day now. But instead she continues protecting her eggs, thought she is clearly agitated by the annoying insects. The feral honey bees tolerate the python as long as the snake remains calm. Any sudden movement from the reptile, such as striking at a potential predator will be seen as aggression. The feral ..

Burmese pythons have an established permanent breeding population in South Florida and belong to the “new” apex predators of the Everglades today. Top predators like the american alligators prey regularly on all kinds of reptiles, including pythons. An adult alligator will have little trouble to overpower, kill and eat any juvenile and in some cases even an adult constrictor. Nevertheless, a fully grown Burmese Python can reach over twenty feet in lengths and becomes extremely dangerous prey item for most crocodilians.

These large constrictors have not much to fear and will feed on most animals they come across (including alligators) when hungry. Pythons are non venomous snakes and kill by constricting their prey, wrapping its body around in a thigh coil until the animals dies of suffocation within a few minuets. The prey will be swallowed mostly head first and whole. This process can take considerable time during which the snake is vulnerable to attacks from other predators. Confrontations between pythons and alligator have been recorded during the last years but still, very little is know on the outcome of such “fights”. The fact is that invasive species like the burmese pythons are a part of the Everglades today and it is up to everyone to find out as much as possible and use the newly gain knowledge to keep the python population in check. Alligator fights python was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro near the Everglades in 2015.

Burmese pythons will not feed during the two months of incubation but the female python will attack and kill potential prey such as rodents, if such approaches the incubating python as shown in this video. The snake will not eat the killed rat, which raises another issue, cuz the smell of the dead rodent will certainly attack predators…

Burmese pythons reach sexual maturity in four to five years. Males breed at 7 to 9 feet and females breed when they are at least 9 feet. When ready to mate, the female pythons release Pheromones, chemicals that are secreted to send messages to other animals, which notify male Pythons in the area that there is a female that is ready to mate. After mating, the female may lay up to 100 eggs, but the average amount of eggs they lay is about 35. Unlike most snakes, the female coils around the clutch until the eggs hatch, keeping them warm. This is accomplished by muscle spasms which increases the temperature by as much as seven degrees. The mother also stays with the eggs to protect them from predators. The female will attack and strike at anything daring to approach the eggs. During this entire time, the mother does not leave the eggs, not even to eat. Once the babies hatch, the mother leaves them on their own. They must find their own food and shelter, and must protect themselves from predators. Burmese Defending Eggs was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro in South Florida in 2016.

While Burmese Pythons have been very popular pet, they tend to be aggressive, especially when food is involved. This large-bodied snake is responsible for the most deaths and attacks on reptile-keepers. Burmese Pythons are a subspecies of Indian pythons, as are Rock Pythons; both of which are on the list. They are found naturally in rain forests in Southeast Asia, and are actually near-threatened in the wild. Their average length is 18 feet and their average weight is 190 pounds. They are known for their attitude, and are infamous for biting their handlers. In general over 20 documented accounts of Burmese pythons sending their owners to the hospital are recorded per year. Regardless, they will always be popular pets.
The Rock python is the largest species of snake that exists in Africa. The average adult length is around 16 feet, but specimens reaching over 20 are common. The largest caught was 32.1 feet long; caught on Africa's Ivory Coast. These snakes can weigh up to and over 170 pounds at adulthood. They are both respected and hated/feared in Africa, because they have a tendency to kill and consume livestock from towns, including goats, pets, and small deer. There are documented accounts of rock pythons attacking people, but very few of them killing humans. These pythons are most well known for, quite literally, biting off more than they can chew. It is not uncommon to find a dead rock python that has choked on a meal.
Reticulated Pythons are native to Southeastern Asia and are feared because of their size. There are few confirmed instances of these snakes eating people and pets. Their primary diet consists of apes and monkeys and other small mammals, and as such, these snakes are incredible climbers. These snakes are remarkably fast in the trees. Also, like mo..

They are both respected and hated/feared in Africa, because they have a tendency to kill and consume livestock from towns, including goats, pets, and small deer. There are documented accounts of rock pythons attacking people, but very few of them killing humans. These pythons are most well known for, quite literally, biting off more than they can chew. It is not uncommon to find a dead rock python that has choked on a meal.
Reticulated Pythons are native to Southeastern Asia and are feared because of their size. There are few confirmed instances of these snakes eating people and pets. Their primary diet consists of apes and monkeys and other small mammals, and as such, these snakes are incredible climbers. These snakes are remarkably fast in the trees. Also, like mo..

While Burmese Pythons have been very popular pet, they tend to be aggressive, especially when food is involved. This large-bodied snake is responsible for the most deaths and attacks on reptile-keepers. Burmese Pythons are a subspecies of Indian pythons, as are Rock Pythons; both of which are on the list. They are found naturally in rain forests in Southeast Asia, and are actually near-threatened in the wild. Their average length is 18 feet and their average weight is 190 pounds. They are known for their attitude, and are infamous for biting their handlers. In general over 20 documented accounts of Burmese pythons sending their owners to the hospital are recorded per year. Regardless, they will always be popular pets.

Black widows are small spiders which have an unusually potent venom containing the neurotoxin latrotoxin, which causes the condition latrodectism, both named after the genus. Female widow spiders have unusually large venom glands and their bite can be particularly harmful to large vertebrates, including humans. However, despite the genus' notoriety, Latrodectus bites are rarely fatal or even produce serious complications. Only the bites of the females are dangerous to humans.

The prevalence of sexual cannibalism, a behavior in which the female eats the male after mating, has inspired the common name "widow spiders". This behaviour may promote the survival odds of the offspring; however, females of some species only rarely show this behavior, and much of the documented evidence for sexual cannibalism has been observed in laboratory cages where the males could not escape. Male black widow spiders tend to select their mates by determining if the female has eaten already to avoid being eaten themselves. They are able to tell if the female has fed by sensing chemicals in the web. Black widow dying was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro in Florida in 2018.

American alligators are territorial and will become extremely aggressive during mating and nesting season or while feeding in general. They will try to chase competition away from available food source or even kill and cannibalize their own species during such confrontations. Feeding in larger groups will most likely end in a feeding frenzy, in which every alligator tries to rip a piece of meat of the prey followed by wild splashing and death roll. Aggressive behavior of alligators is also common during mating behavior, in which the strongest male fight of the weaker one to secure its position in the ranking order, which often end in death for the weaker alligator. Alligators - aggressive behavior was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro and is available at www.Ojatrovisuals.com

My name is Heiko Kiera and I'm a wildlife videographer with a special interest in portraying the behavior of reptiles, such as alligators and crocodiles. Snakes, in particular venomous snakes, are the most misunderstood and subsequently disliked creatures on our planet. I hope my video work will help many people to overcome their fear and hopefully change their preconception on these fascinating animals.
