Yes, alligators can climb chain link fence. That is why in some places you will see chain link fence that is bent at the top. They can't climb it if it in bent in (toward where they would be coming from).

Anytime you have a body of water in Florida you may find a gator in it. The come up to a fenced not pet the them. According to the gator keeper @ Bush Garden, a cat or dog taste like chicken to them.
A few issues you need to take in consideration before you move to sunny Florida. Check out the school ratings, link up with a realtor, check out the builder, should you buy a new home, the drive to work from Riverview, Brandon,Valrico, Seffner etc.
