Really? Didn't know that. They're salt water aren't they? Where do they like to hang out? (I mean in terms of location: Gulf, Everglades, Keys?)

"Sugarcane has been an integral part of the south Louisiana economy and culture for more than 200 years. When Jesuit priests first brought sugarcane into south Louisiana in 1751, little did they know that the foundation was being laid for an industry that now contributes $2 billion to the Louisiana economy."

- Louisiana State University

"Sugarcane is grown primarily in the tropics and subtropics. In the United States, sugarcane is grown commercially in Florida, Louisiana, Texas and Hawaii. Cane for sugar was 26.7 million tons in 2011. In 2010, cane for sugar was valued at nearly $1.1 billion. The 2011 crop value data was not available for this report." (NASS)

Well I should say it produces enough to sell commercially not just in limited amounts like in other states.

Yep, prefer salt water. A large population near the Turkey Point Nuclear Plant. Mostly they hang in extreme southern Florida because they can't tolerate cold although one occasionally wanders north. I'm talking about crocs not the Keys alcoholics.

Without looking at the source again I think it said Florida accounted for 13 billion of the total and Louisiana did 10 billion - not so limited.
