The Royal Palm Beach Library hosts the Okeeheelee Nature Center for "ONC Visits the Library: Alligators & Crocodiles." A live baby alligator will join the fun as attendees learn about the importance of these familiar Florida reptiles. 

Alligators and crocodiles have similarities, however, there are also quite a few differences. Alligators have a broad, rounded snout, while crocodiles have a more pointed, V-shaped snout. Alligators are also typically darker in color, while crocodiles have a olive-green or brown hue, and have a narrower, more elongated jaw.

Alligators are primarily found in freshwater environments such as swamps, marshes, rivers, and lakes, while crocodiles can inhabit both freshwater and saltwater environments. They are often found in rivers, estuaries, mangrove swamps, and coastal areas.

Alligators are native to the United States and China. American alligators are found in the southeastern United States, particularly in Florida and Louisiana, while crocodiles have a much wider geographic range and can be found in Africa, Asia, the Americas, and Australia.

Royal Palm Beach Library is located at 500 Civic Center Way in Royal Palm Beach. The phone number is (561) 790-6030.
