Central Berkeley Fire & EMS says it is not uncommon to see gators this time of year.

“We would like to remind residents and visitors to Berkeley County that this is a particularly busy time for gators, as this is the beginning of their hatching season,” the department said. “During this time, it is not uncommon to find mother gators nesting in areas such as coves. If you plan on enjoying our waterways, please be mindful of this and stay vigilant, especially in areas such as coves.”
