an alligator has a tapetum lucidum at the back of each eye, which reflects light back into the photoreceptor cells to make the most of low light. the colour of eyeshine differs from species to species, but in alligators glows red. the length of the alligator can be approximated by judging the distance between the eyes, making this alligator very long.
