An American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis Daudin) was observed and photographed in the Gulf of Mexico on 4 May 2004, some 56 km south of Marsh Island, LA (approximately 63 km from the nearest point on mainland Louisiana). Alligators generally avoid saltwater and we are unaware of prior documentation of an alligator occurring this distance offshore.
