Where to find Mississippi Alligators

There are plenty of alligators around the Mississippi Coast as the population has increased from near extinction back in the early 1960s. The state of Mississippi is currently estimated to have 32,000 to 39,000 American Alligators. Mississippi has many of the largest gators in the region, compared to neighboring states; this is due to the laws restricting hunting. Thanks to regulations and restrictions protecting the reptiles the population has grown, and remains healthy.
