American Alligator, are found in the southern United States. The Alligator is black with yellow strips when it is a baby and is generally brownish when it is in its older days. The maximum length is about 5.8 m , but it is more typically ranges from about 1.8 to 3.7 m . The adult alligator feeds mainly on fish, small mammals, and birds but may sometimes take prey as large as deer or cattle. Members of both sexes hiss, and the males also give loud roars that carry over long distance. During the breeding season, the female builds a mound nest of mud and plants (See in picture above) in which she buries about 20 to 70 hard- shelled eggs. She guards her eggs and may at this time be dangerous. Members of this species usually avoid human. Most people are afrade of Alligators, but they are afraid of you so donít think they try to hunt you down. They will attack you if you are ner her nest. So donít go nere then if you see one in Floida walk slowly away.
