American Alligator

About American Alligator

After decades of being hunted in the 1960s, the American Alligator was declared an endangered species. They have since recovered in numbers to a great degree.

They feed on anything they can catch, mostly birds and turtles. In the winter, the alligators hibernate in shallow dens. In the summer, they lay in water-filled hollows, which are commonly known as “gator holes.”

Alligators are the largest reptile in the Western Hemisphere.
