This exciting wild animal show features several dozen Alligators, Crocodiles, and Caimans. Under the careful watch of their expert keepers, these cold-blooded animals, and their warm-blooded keepers, will entertain you as they show you what being a crocodilian is all about.
Professional keepers will wade through the crocodile-infested water, and fearlessly demonstrate the strength and agility of these cold-blooded animals. These animal experts will also show these dangerous, prehistoric-looking beasts during their "feeding time" frenzy.

Gator Fun Facts
- Alligators, Crocodiles, Caimans, and Gharial make up the family of reptiles called crocodilians.
- This family of large reptiles dates back 84 million years.
- Closest living relative: birds
- The smallest species of crocodilian is the Cuvier's Dwarf Caiman; the largest is the Saltwater Crocodile.
- Crocodilians replace their teeth throughout life - a single crocodile can go through at least 3,000 teeth in its lifetime!
- Even when partially submerged with a mouth full of water, Crocodilians are still able to breathe due to internal nostrils in the back of their throat.
- Their skin is covered with non-overlapping scales composed of the protein keratin (the same protein as hooves, horns, feathers, hair, claws, and nails).
- Crocodilians lay eggs.
