Are Alligators Nocturnal or Diurnal?

Alligators are nocturnal creatures, which means they are more active at night.  Primarily they do their hunting during this time as well; usually around dusk or sometime during the night.  They carry out the process of hunting by laying motionless and waiting for their prey.  These creatures are exclusively carnivorous and prey upon many different types of creatures; however their selection also seems to be determined by size.
