Other than being the main attraction on some reality tv programs, alligators are quite fascinating creatures.
Did you know they are called “living fossils” because they have been here for millions of years, yet they only have two species; the American and the Chinese?
The difference in the species has more to do with location than distinguishable features. The American alligator takes up residence in the south-east areas of the US like Florida. The Chinese alligator can be found along the Yangtze River, but perhaps not for long as it is now endangered.
All alligators are cold-blooded and like to warm themselves in the summertime along the shores of marshy or swampy areas. To help keep themselves warm in the colder months, the alligator digs “gator-holes.” These are in the water and are situated where there is plenty of mud. Once in their hole, the alligator covers itself with the mud for insulation.
