Topic: Alligator Range & Habitat
I observed on the range map of this site that there are alligators verified in anumber of counties that I previously thought were well out of their range, for example Greene and Mississippi counties.
Is there someplace where I can obtain more information about these specific county records? Are they old records (e.g. 19th century) or are they farily more recent. Do they represent a population or simply individuals that were on a "walkabout"?
I would tend to think that these verfied sightings in the more northerly counties are flukes rather than a sign of an established population. Thanks for any clarification.
