Lake Mastique and Alligators
Posted on Jan 1st, 2018
Alligators are common throughout Florida and are usually found in fresh water lakes and ponds. Lake Mastique and the surrounding Bunche Preserve are salt water environments and alligators will usually avoid this environment.
However, alligators do, from time to time, appear in our lake and lie on our beaches.
If you observe an alligator - follow the understanding we have with that species "we will ignore you and you will ignore us." In other words - do not approach, frighten or feed the gator.
