We offer swamp tours year round, but the summer is the best time to see big alligators! Here are some fun facts about this sulky species:
– With nearly 3 million gators, Louisiana has the most abundant alligator population in the U.S.!
– Alligators' spoon shaped jaws make it difficult to pick up food. They compensate by swallowing food whole which is digested by the strong acid in their stomachs; this acid is so strong, it can even digest steel!
– Despite their monster-like appearance, alligators rarely make unprovoked attacks on humans. Crocodiles, on the other hand, found in salt water, can be quite aggressive.
