15.18 ALLIGATORS (Governing Documents)

Babcock Ranch and adjacent areas include an abundance of lakes, wetlands, streams, and other natural and improved areas which may serve as habitat for alligators. While the Founder and the Association may post warning signs in various areas of the Community to warn that alligators may be present, neither the Founder nor the Association have any duty to monitor for the presence of alligators in such areas or elsewhere in Babcock Ranch, nor any duty to remove alligators or install fencing or take other protective measures to protect residents and others within the Community from alligators that may be present in such areas. Each person who enters into an area of Babcock Ranch where alligators may be present does so as his or her own risk and is responsible for his or her own safety.

IT IS DANGEROUS AND ILLEGAL TO FEED OR HARASS ALLIGATORS.
PENALTIES MAY INCLUDE MONETARY FINES FOR VIOLATORS AS PROVIDED BY FLORIDA LAW.
