Yes there are fire ants. No alligators and few bears except in the rural foothills/mountain region. Other notable wildlife includes lots of deer, rabbits, wild turkey, squirrels, chipmunks, some foxes and coyotes, lots of raccoons, some beavers, and tons of various birds, among many other things. Other than birds, bees, ants, squirrels, and chipmunks, these others are not commonly seen around urban and suburban areas.

The fire ant hills are pretty easy to spot, luckily, so just watch where you're stepping if you're out in a field or something. You could find them in your yard too, but we don't have many right now.
