What could represent Florida better than the American Alligator? The name "Alligator" comes from the Spanish form el lagarto (“the lizard”), which the Spanish explorers and settlers, in Florida, called the Alligator.

Alligators have a wider nose and darker color than the crocodile does. You can see the upper teeth when the Alligator's jaws are closed. You can see both the upper and lower teeth in a crocodiles mouth.

On average they weigh about 800 pounds and are about 13 feet in length. The largest ever recorded, in Florida, was 17'5" long.

Alligator habitat is in fresh or brackish marshes, bays, rivers, lakes, swamps, and ponds. They are typically shy and non-aggressive but can occasionally be a problem. Alligator diet includes gar fish, turtles, snakes, frogs, small mammals, and birds.

Although their bodies are heavy and their metabolisms are slow, they can generate short bursts of speed exceeding 30 mph.
