The Los Angeles Alligator Farm, located next door to the Los Angeles Ostrich Farm in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, United States, was an alligator farm and a major city tourist attraction from 1907 until 1953.
Originally situated across from Lincoln Park, at 3627 Mission Road, it moved to Buena Park, California in 1953, where it was renamed the California Alligator Farm.
The attraction was shut down in 1984 after attendance dropped below 50,000 persons annually, and the animals were relocated to a private estate in Florida.
If the Los Angeles Alligator Farm had never closed, what will happen to the alligators if humans disappeared?

The alligators are starving, alligators can survive for a long time without food, but they are close to their starvation. Luckily, some broke out of their cages, roaming freely in the post-human suburbs, hunting any animals they come in contact.

The descendants of alligators that escaped from the alligator farm from Los Angeles have survived. They have spread out to many other swamps and marshlands of California, Oregon, Nevada, and Arizona. They resemble their ancestors, but can go longer without water than their ancestors, which explains why these alligators have spread out into other places. Their favorite food are descendants of feral dogs, descendants of feral cats, pronghorns, mule deer, feral horses, descendants of escaped zebras, descendants of escaped cape buffaloes, descendants of escaped wild Asian water buffaloes, bison, and birds. In Florida, alligators face competition with introduced monitor lizards and Burmese pythons, but pythons and monitor lizards aren't present in many parts of California and nearby states, so these alligators aren't facing this problems, they are actually flourishing in their new environment. The new alligator subspecies has now been formed, they are now known as California alligators (also known as Alligator Californiacus).
