Have you ever heard that if you see a body of fresh water in Florida, there’s probably an alligator in it? As far as we know, nobody has tested the theory, but we do know Florida is one of the best places to see alligators, both in the wild and in animal refuges and zoological parks. You don’t have to travel all the way to the Everglades to see them, either. There are spots to see gators in all parts of Florida.
Before you set out on your alligator adventure, be sure to study up on alligator safety. Never approach an alligator and never attempt to feed one in the wild (doing so is actually illegal in Florida). For the most part, if you respect an alligator’s space, they will respect yours and you can safely observe these awesome animals.
