In N.C.?  I didn't realize they made it that far north?

Gators are actually fairly docile if you just leave them alone.  There's a donut shack in Gulf Shores, AL that has a pond off to the side of it where a couple of large turtles, a few large catfish and an alligator live.  Every morning, they take the donuts that didn't sell the day before and put them out for customers to throw in the pond and feed the gator.  He was the fattest 6-foot gator I've ver seen.

Yep. You can't really swim around in any fresh water source down here without worrying about them. The Cape Fear River here has a bunch of big boys, on top of the occasional Bull Shark. We have the Battleship North Carolina as a floating museum and right across are two 15ft gators that nest.
