We've got two major species of alligators around these parts, and residents make it a point to familiarize themselves with the characteristics of each and gain a thorough knowledge and understanding of the differences between the two. One routinely kills and eats animals and can be equally deadly to humans. Once those fearful jaws latch onto a human ankle, the alligator will drag a person back to its watery lair, roll and tear into its flesh. The other can be quite docile and friendly and maybe even cooperate by posing for passing photographers.
Can you tell which species is which? It pays to do some research ... your life could depend on it.
