Most interactions consist of see ing alligators at a distance. However, if you have a and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) urges you to call their toll-free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286). The FWC places the highest priority on public safety, said Eric Sutton, FWCs executive director. When someone calls our Nuisance Alligator Hotline to report an alligator they believe poses a threat, we dispatch one of our contracted nuisance alligator trap pers to resolve the situation. Although alligator bite incidents resulting in seri ous injury are rare in Florida, the FWC recommends taking precautions when having fun in and around the water. Alligators inhabit all 67 counties in Florida and can be found anywhere there is standing water. Re ming only in designated swimming areas during day light hours. Also keep pets on a leash and away from the water. Because alligators control their body temperature by basking in the sun, they may be easily observed. However, the FWC urges people to keep their distance if they see one. And never feed alligators because it is dangerous and illegal. The FWC also works to keep Floridians and visi tors informed, including providing advice about Liv ing with Alligators. Learn more about alligators at Alligator.
