We’ve seen crocodiles as one of the most dangerous animals on this list, but we also have to include alligators. Even though they’re terrifying to look at, just like their cousin the crocodile, they don’t kill as many people. But that doesn’t mean they’re not dangerous. In fact, since 1948, there have only been 25 deaths from an alligator. But every single year, there are around seven attacks from an alligator in Florida. It’s best to just stay away from an alligator if you happen to see one.
It’s unlikely an alligator will ever bite, but if it does happen to bite someone, it likely means they’ve already bitten someone in their past and are exhibiting repetitive behavior. So you should call wildlife authorities. Additionally, alligators are only likely to attack when they’re feeling provoked, defensive, or aggressive. They won’t randomly attack you and are much more harmless than the crocodiles (Far and Wide).
