If you wonder why the Teen Mom 2 alum doesn’t worry about the kids in the river, it’s probably because alligators are mostly active during the night in summer. The website noted, “They thrive in NC swamps, rivers, canals, tidal basins, and even ponds and lakes along the coastline and eastern inland regions.” Well, Jenelle seemed casually unworried about the chances of Jace encountering one in the river.

Flips Off Alligators As Not Being Dangerous

One fan asked the Teen Mom 2 alum, “Do yall have alligators there? 🥰LOL just wondering u can’t see gd in the deep water I’m sure.” In her reply, Jenelle said, “Yeah but they are scared of people 😂.” Later, she told another follower, “You’d be surprised how many kids there are at the river. It’s safe and has been used for centuries and has SO much history” Is it true that alligators possibly don’t pose a danger to all those kids?

According to the report by Carolina Country, John McNeill of the Alligator Alliance noted, “Alligators are naturally afraid of humans and will avoid contact.” However, those that have become used to humans who feed them probably present a bigger danger. Additionally, the website advises folks to “never approach an alligator —  no matter its size.”
