The Great Alligator Migration
Published on February 20, 2013 by Sara Foss

There's an interesting article over at Slate about how alligators are slowly moving north, due to climate change.

I really liked seeing alligators on my swamp tour of the bayou outside New Orleans, and on my trip to the Everglades, but I'd prefer they remain an exotic creature. In other words: I don't want them anywhere near me. The rattlesnakes on Tongue Mountain in Lake George terrify me - the last thing I need is a bunch of alligators roaming around the woods, too. Though I'm far enough north that I probably don't have too much to worry about. Unlike the people in Virginia, and D.C.
