The Off-Season Is The Absolute Best Time To Visit Alligator Adventure, A Terrifying And Fascinating Attraction In South Carolina
Many people in South Carolina are so steeled to the sighting of an alligator that seeing one in the wild just isn’t as unnerving as it maybe should be. According to the SCNDR, approximately 100,000 alligators currently roam free in South Carolina. That’s an astounding number! Yet, the Palmetto State doesn’t hold a candle to the state with the most alligators in America. Louisiana has a reported 800,000 alligators. One alligator in the wild may not be upending, but when we think of alligators in mass numbers… the heebie jeebies set it.
