Have you ever seen aquatic plants that are sprawling grounds for Alligators?
These were spotted at the side of Salado river, a tributary of Paraguay River and is an off the beaten place that provides a hiding place for small Alligators.
These are giant round water lilies spanning over 1.5 meters (approx 5 feet) that was believed to be extinct about 12 years ago and have given a boost to tourism.
These wonderful plants which are a queen of water lilies are native to Paraguay which and appear every third or fourth southern hemisphere summer.
The scientific name of this plant is Victoria Cruziana. These are also called Alligator Lilies because they are large enough to hide small Alligator.
These lilies are very good in tea making as these fight asthma and bronchial issues and hence authorities have issued warnings to fine anyone who tries to harvest this plant.
