Do we have "Real Crocodiles" in Florida?
This leaves us wondering: Do we have "real" crocodiles, members of the family of crocodiles, in Florida also? The answer is: "Yes, we do." There are not too many of them, though. The population is probably a few thousand, and they live in brackish or saltwater.
Recently a young couple was attacked by a crocodile. That was the first time that a crocodile attack was reported in the US. Those people were bathing in a canal in Miami - at 2:00 a.m. - although knowing there were two crocodiles (no gators) around. Was it a good idea to invade the territory of those reptiles in the middle of the night? Well, they obviously got their punishment, and the crocs probably got their sentence, too. Although it was not really their fault. Florida's saltwater crocodiles seem to get a little easier testy than alligators, but why do you want to figure that out?
