    They've also been seen by kayakers around Colington Island and in Oregon Inlet.

    It is advised to wear bells and whistles and carry pepper spray when in an area know to be populated by alligators. It is also advised to be able to recognize alligator dung. Alligator dung resembles a large Canine deposit, however it smells of pepper and has bells and whistles in it.

    I never imagined you'd find alligators any farther north than Georgia.
    This is something you won't find in the travel brochures.

    I saw a gator in one of the canals alongside Hwy 64 on my way to Columbia, NC this summer. It was pretty big.
