How long can American alligators live?



  1. 0 Votes

    Like many large reptiles, American alligators can live for quite a long time – if they make it through the juvenile stage, when they are vulnerable to predators.  The lifespan of American alligators in the wild is about 50 years.  When newly hatched, young alligators make easy prey for a variety of larger animals, and this is when they are most vulnerable.  By the time they reach about four feet long, however, there are few other animals that would dare to attack them – other than humans, and other alligators.
