Watch for Gators

August 20, 2019

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reminds everyone to be careful in and around water of alligators and crocodiles, especially now, as temperatures increase.
The state hosts two native crocodilians: the American alligator, found in all 67 counties; and the American crocodile, sometimes found in the Keys and in south-east and southwest Florida. Both species have shared Florida’s waters with people for centuries. FWC recommends keeping pets away from the water.
Other safety measures are listed in the “Living with Alligators” brochure at, and the “Living with Crocodiles” brochure at The FWC’s Nuisance Alligator Hotline is 866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286).
