Alligators are only found in America and China. They mostly inhabit in fresh water ponds, lakes, rivers, marshes and swamps. Southern Florida is the only place in world where alligators live side by side with crocodiles. As compared to American ones, the Chinese alligators are in severe danger and are believed to be few dozen left now. They have two type of walking styles called as ‘sprawling’ and ‘high walk’. Sprawling is done when alligators crawl touching their belly to the ground whereas high walk is done when they walk on their feet-like limbs and positioning their belly up from the ground.
