I agree with slw123 . I've lived here almost all my 48 yrs and the thing is about gator's is they like water, retention ponds......and of course never leave kids unattended.
Country clubs tend to get gators ( I worked at one and we had to call the guy a few times a year to remove a few ) and real rural areas and it is very RARE for them to be wandering around neighborhoods. One way o r another they'll be spotted. Fences help with that issue as long as they are over a certain height I heard.
Here is a link for you......http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/uw230 This should help ya out! But don't let it deter you from moving to the Sunshine State ( which is chilly now with cold weather! )
It's a great state....if you live down south, live OUT of Orlando city limits, and into the further suburbs, rent/home prices are cheaper usually.
