Warm Weather Means Active 
Alligators and Crocodiles

The onset of warm weather in the spring is when Florida's native crocodilians start getting active, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is urging Floridians and visitors to be cautious when having fun in and around water.

Florida is home to two native crocodilians - the American alligator, which is found in all 67 counties, and the American crocodile, which may be found in coastal areas of the Keys, Southeast and Southwest Florida. Both species have shared Florida's waters with people for centuries.

The FWC recommends keeping pets away from the water. There are other precautionary measures people should take to reduce potential conflicts with alligators and crocodiles, and they are available in the "Living with Alligators" brochure at and the "Living with Crocodiles" brochure at

The FWC advises, if you have concerns with an alligator or crocodile that poses a threat to you, your pets or property, call the FWC's toll-free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286).

Alligators and crocodiles are an important part of Florida's heritage and play a valuable role in the ecosystems where they live. For more information on alligators and crocodiles, visit

How far are you from Daytona Beach? I'm speaking at some thing down there in late 2010 north of there?

Drop me an email.

When I did the event last year, there were alligators just walking across the road.

That last one can't be real. The thing is so big that I would have to go borrow an M1 Abrams to take care of it.

Mmmmm and I thought that that our local Heron was a problem, guess that life this side of the pond is not as interesting as I thought. Great insight into life on the far side' Albert, cheers for the posting.
