See ya later, Alligator

There are only two living species of alligators: the American Alligator and the Chinese Alligator. The United States and China are the only 2 countries on Earth that have wild alligators. In the U.S., alligators live mainly in Florida and Louisiana. In China, they live along the Yangtze River and are endangered. In sharp contrast to Chinese Alligators, it is estimated that there are over 1 million American Alligators in Florida alone. Alligators are cousins of the crocodile, and the U.S. is the only nation on Earth that has both alligators and crocodiles.
