American Alligator- A Look at the Alligator
After years of being hunted for its skin and almost coming to extinction, the American alligator has many an incredible rebound back to some fantastic numbers. Alligators now number somewhere around 5 million a quarter of them living, you got it Florida. With numbers so high in Florida, you can see why animal control of this once-extinct animal needs to be harvested regularly. Now that we have some of the numbers of alligators we discuss their habitation and surroundings.

American alligators are dark green or black. Alligators have wide snouts and alligators love freshwater. Alligators also can adapt to the cold for a short period and are much colder tolerant than one would think. Alligators are members of a group called “The Archosaur Group” which is like dinosaurs birds. One of the alligators recorded, from history books, records them as long as 20 ft. in Florida. In recent years after the comeback of the alligator, we have a recording of a 14 ft. alligator that weighed about 1,000 pounds. Today’s average length of an alligator recorded is around 8 to 9 feet. Like other species of animals, and unlike other reptiles, the male is larger than the female. They also have territorial instincts and protect areas during times of breading. They attack and drive away any unwanted males from that area for the exclusive right to breed females that are ready to be bred.

Similar to birds, alligators have 4 chamber hearts, which operate in a way to prevent oxygenated and UN oxygenated blood from mixing together. Other reptiles have teeth that are attached to the side of their jaws, and alligators' teeth are socketed tooth alignment similar to the ancient prehistoric birds that lived long ago. Other reptiles have their legs poked out from their side and walk as such. Alligators do also but the legs actually come up their bodies having them support their weight. This is also a similar characteristic to their prehistoric birds from long ago.

Alligator Breeding
Alligators also make nests and care for the eggs when the baby alligators chirp the mother comes to their aid looking to protect them. Female alligators will lay about 30 to 40 eggs. About two-thirds of these eggs will actually develop into adults with the other third falling prey to other animals raccoons, snakes, and other lizards, and to the environment around them. Females as you might imagine become very aggressive and protective of their alligator eggs. Protecting their nest and attacking anything that comes within their area. These protective mothers may attack humans, who may become careless. The way alligators are sexes is determined is by what the seasonal conditions are for that given year. The vegetation provides heat to help in the incubation of the eggs as the plants die. Alligators that hatch during a higher temperature season tend to have more males hatched during that time. Of course, there are still females in that brood because of uneven temperature degrees more to the center of the nest. When babies are still in eggs they chirp sounds. Bringing the mother to protect them till they are able to head off on their own. Even though the mother protects them they still fall prey to many predators like raccoons, otters, birds, snapping turtles, and big fish. Of course, the biggest predator to this little alligator is larger alligators. Alligators will grow about a foot every year. When they get about 4 ft. they become less vulnerable to the predators in the area. Alligators live about 40 to 50 years.

Alligators do not produce their own body heat by getting their body heat from the sun. That is why you see them basking in the sun taking in as much sun as possible as energy. Alligators store much energy for their nighttime hunting of animals throughout the swamp. Gators are lazy in their lifestyle. Gators are of ectothermic biology. Gators do not need large amounts of food. Eating a good meal in 3 weeks. is enough for them to survive, they may be able to go beyond that for months without eating. In the winter sometimes they don’t eat at all.

Alligators and humans don’t really mix. With alligators wandering into areas with humans, there can be disastrous encounters. Gators have been known to climb backyard fences crawl into swimming pools etc. They basically find ways to invade the living space. Alligators have been known to take pets dogs, cats, domestic cattle, farm animals, and such as a meal. Alligators are fearless animals when it comes to encounters. As a predator, it waits for its chance to attack. There are many nuisance gators also. People who mean well but just don’t understand that when feeding gators they lose their fear of man.
