Scientists in Florida have observed the Florida red-bellied turtle using alligator nests as their own daycare centers. The research suggests that this species of turtle, and possibly other species as well, have developed some sort of symbiotic relationships with alligators. It’s unknown whether the alligators actually consented to this symbiotic relationship, or were even aware of what was going on. However, the same researchers investigating the alligator nests also encountered some unnaturally passive and docile mother alligators. This might explain how a mother turtle was able to approach an alligator nest without being attacked.
