Are there a lot of gator attacks in Louisiana or not? I never really hear about gator attacks in Louisiana but I know there’s way more gators there then in Florida.

I've had 2 different people tell me that Louisiana gators are not as agressive as Florida gators. One of them was an artist in Jackson Square, and the other was a swamp tour guide. I have no idea as to the veracity of those claims.

I think a big reason why you see fewer gator attacks in Louisiana than in Florida (although, to be clear, its not like Florida has a "problem" with gator attacks) is because people in Louisiana who live in gator country have generally lived in gator country for generations and know how to coexist with gators. Contrast this to all the recent transplants from the NE in Florida who do not know the land/don't really know what they are getting into.
