What are Alligators?

Alligators have a long, rounded snout that has upward facing nostrils at the end; this allows breathing to occur while the rest of the body is underwater. The young have bright yellow stripes on the tail; adults have dark stripes on the tail. It’s easy to distinguish an alligator from a crocodile by the teeth.

How do they behave?

Alligators are predators and are nocturnal—that is, active mostly at night. During the day they often lie at the water’s edge in large numbers, sunning themselves. At night they retreat to the water, where they live solitary lives and establish individual territories.

What do they eat?

Their diets include prey species that are abundant and easily accessible. Juvenile alligators eat primarily insects, amphibians, small fish, and other invertebrates. Adult alligators eat rough fish, snakes, turtles, small mammals, and birds.

Habitats/Where does the alligator Lives?

Alligators are usually found in freshwater, slow-moving rivers. They also live in swamps, marshes and lakes. They can only tolerate salt water for brief periods because they do not have salt glands.

The American alligators live in the wild in the southeastern United States. You’re most likely to spot them in Florida and Louisiana, where they live in rivers, lakes, ponds, swamps, bayous, and marshes.
