    Alligators are indigenous to the US and China. Everywhere else just has crocodiles. But crocodiles are also indigenous to the US.

    Florida is next to Africa so I'm not surprised if African killer bees and Nile crocs are flying/swimming over.

    Cool! But the home team is nothing to scoff at either.

    Honestly the invasive species that causes the most damage in Fl are the wild hogs. By far the worst, Nile crocs have been found, multiple species of caiman have been found. Some have been released intentionally and others by natural disasters (Andrew was responsible for the majority of burms in FL).

    Also fuck monkeys

    Lol I figured there was more to the story. I wonder if that's due to the environment though and if the North American crocs have the potential to get to that size under the right circumstances. Mind blowing either way.

    So odd that NA was never populated by primates.

    What about gigantopithecus?! You may know him as Bigfoot or Samsquantch.

    It has been reported that there is a croc around where I live in Florida. Haven't seen it, and believe it has been't seen in awhile but it's likely still around.

    Pablo Escobar was way ahead of you. Really looking out for Florida's well being.

    I think the American Alligator might be my favorite reptile based on appearance. It's the perfect mix of adorable chubster and terrifying swamp monster. Alligator snapping turtles are up there too.

    He never got to finish his master plan, the American government interfered like they always do. They're on their way still, but hIppos are notoriously bad with maps and their feet are too fat to use GPS.
