Growing up in Alabama you always heard about the alligators in south Alabama but rarely in the north Alabama. It is becoming more common to hear about alligator sightings in north Alabama and especially around The Wheeler Wildlife Refuge. One of first alligator sighting in north Alabama occurred in 1964 at Wheeler Wildlife Refuge. In 1979 55 alligators were relocated from the warmer waters of Louisiana to the Wheeler Wildlife Refuge. It is estimated that there 50-70 alligators in the Wheeler Wildlife Refuge. I wouldn’t worry too much about a gator take over any time soon, the colder winter weather a milder climate slows down reproduction of alligators in north Alabama.
