ALLIGATORS

Living Dinosaurs!

Modern crocodilians have walked and swam the earth for 80 million years. They are flawlessly designed to survive in Florida's swampy habitats and we feel lucky to call them our neighbors. We strive to give guests a personal experience with these living relics of the past.
