Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 6:00AM - 10:00AM

It is alligator mating season right now, so alligators are more active than normal. Now, the FWC is letting everyone know to be on the lookout for crocodiles as well. The once-endangered American crocodile is gaining in numbers and now 2,000 crocodiles are living in the wild and all of them are in Florida. You can tell the difference between the alligator and crocodile by the narrower snout on the crocodile as well a grayish green color. Alligators are black in color and have a more rounded snout.

Living with American Crocodiles

New video about co-existing with crocodilesSeeing an American crocodile from a distance is a special experience for those visiting or living in south Florida and the Keys! Conflicts between the shy and reclusive American crocodile and people are extremely rare in this state. Our new video offers safety advice to help people continue to safely co-exist with this unique native species. If you’re concerned about a specific crocodile, call 866-392-4286 (866-FWC-GATOR) and one of our crocodile agents will respond.
