Alligator American history

American Alligators are commonly farmed, and thus are commonly distributed as pets. Captive raising prevents them from becoming scarce, and they are quite frequently found in the wild throughout southern parts of North America, especially the southern United States. At one point, the American Alligator was quite endangered, but has now made a recovery. They were hunted until the late 1960's when it was declared illegal. Today, they are farmed for their skin, which is valued in the leather industry. American Alligators are also displaced by habitat loss and humans do not like them to live too close to their habitations. When relocated, some Alligators will return to their original territories and may become nuisances.
