Welcome from NJ!
Welcome from Arizona. Even the scientist who described the alligator had trouble spelling it. The name "alligator" originates from the first Spaniards in Florida; they called the reptiles "el lagarto" which means "the lizard" The American Alligator's scientific name was originally misspelled. They left out one "p" calling it, Alligator mississipiensis instead of Alligator mississippiensis. :wink5:Welcome! The reason I don't live in your state is that I'm awful in spelling.:lol:
