I’d say the most important tip is DON’T.

Alligators are rarely aggressive toward humans if you leave them alone. The same is not true of Florida mosquitos with Zika, dengue, chikungunya, etc.

Great journalism is still alive and well. Whoever wrote these lines could become another Mark Twain.

"When fed, alligators can overcome their natural wariness and learn to associate people with food." If you need help following this to it's logical conclusion, you need more help than we can provide here.

There's nothing lower than an alligator bully.

DANG! I can't bully the alligators? Can I just taunt them, "You'd make a great pair of shoes and a handbag."

I remember in Miami there used to be a kind of "village" for the richer people, and there was a pond with alligators in the middle. I never understood that no one was afraid of them.
