Wildlife in Cross Creek Ranch
The natural beauty of Cross Creek Ranch is what draws many residents to the community. This is also the environment for many of Texas’ native animals. As the weather continues to warm, residents may notice what appears to be an increase in wildlife sightings. Just as we head out doors to enjoy the summer weather, so does the surrounding wildlife. Alligators, snakes, deer and numbers of other animals that were here long before the houses and businesses were built, continue to live in our community. While it may be a bit of a surprise or unsettling to see an alligator or a snake, all are naturally fearful of man and will turn away if not antagonized. The best plan of action is one of avoidance: residents should be mindful of where they are walking, keep pets on a leash, not feed the animals, avoid tall grasses and the edge of the lakes.
BE GATOR SAFE!
DO NOT feed or entice alligators. Alligators overcome their natural shyness and become accustomed or attracted to humans when fed. It is now a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $500, to intentionally feed an alligator.
DO NOT throw fish scraps into the water or leave them on shore. Although you are not intentionally feeding alligators, the end result can be the same.
DO NOT let your pets near them. Keep your pets on a leash and under your control while walking in the neighborhood
DO NOT get too close to them.
DO NOT swim or wade in the lakes
DO NOT agitate or tease them.
DO NOT try to catch one.
Alligators are an important part of Texas Coastal History and play a key role in the ecology of Texas wetlands statewide. They occur in coastal marshes and other wetlands within 120 Texas counties.
The department receives over 300 calls each year regarding alligators perceived as problems or nuisances. The majority of these complaints involve alligators being observed in natural habitat, roadside ditches or other wetlands adjacent to alligator habitat. It is common to see alligators in many types of wetlands that occur throughout the state. As with all wild animals, people should treat alligators with respect. Good judgment can eliminate incidents.
