Have you ever wondered what the most dangerous animals in Florida are? Here a few that we will talk about, sharks, coyotes, and finally alligators.

 

Most people think that alligators are the most common animals in Florida but they would be wrong, it’s sharks. Shark bites can’t actually kill you like how they show in movies, experts have said that they actually have no taste for human flesh, but they sometimes just mistake us for fish food and will let you go after a taste.

 

When everybody thinks about coyotes, most people think there aren’t any in Florida but they would be very wrong. Coyotes mostly live close to low-populated areas. They are related to wolves but are much smaller, only 18-45 pounds. They avoid humans, but small pets on the other hand. Small pets aren’t a part of their usual diet but a tiny animal could become lunch.

 

Alligators are what Florida is known for. There are many stories about how deadly alligators are and how many attacks have happened. They normally wouldn’t attack you if you went into their territory, but Florida is their territory.
