Apalone ferox is found only in the southeastern United States, from southern South Carolina west to Mobile Bay, Alabama, and south through the Florida peninsula. It is apparently not found in the Florida Keys, with the exception of a colony on Big Pine Key, where it was possibly introduced. Apalone ferox can be common over much of its range and sometimes thrives in urbanized areas.
