The team is all about some critters this week -- Louisiana alligators and Southern Yellowjackets. Neil and Karl go for a ride in a yellowjacket-infested Chevy while Avery takes a look at how an alligator farm works. Also, Kristen has a brand new Blooming on the Bayou where she learns all about the LSU Master Gardener program.
