An alligator hunting record in Mississippi was broken for the third time in a week, wildlife officials there say, after the state's heaviest gator was caught.A 13-foot, 6.5-inch gator weighing 741.5 pounds was taken by Dalco Turner of Gluckstadt, Miss., on Sunday morning on the Mississippi River near Port Gibson. It took Turner and two other hunters an hour to finally snare him.

With winter nearly here temperatures are dropping, slowing down the metabolisms of these beautiful apex predators. Alligators can live in temperatures as low as the mid 40's unlike crocodiles, which require significantly warmer temperatures. @andy_mann @gatorboys_chris
