Gators at the Gazette

We had some very fun visitors swing by the newsroom yesterday. Gatorland's Brandon Fisher stopped by with two baby alligators.

The gator I'm holding is just under a year old. Gatorland isn't sure if it's a boy or a girl yet, but the little critter will celebrate its first birthday at the end of August. The gator Brandon is holding is a 3-year-old male, and already has a pretty good set of teeth!

And not to mention those cute little gator paws! Major heart eyes.

If you're not from Central Florida, allow me to clue you in on what exactly Gatorland is.

Gatorland is an attraction park, known as "The Alligator Capital of the World." There isn't a better place to (safely) see thousands of alligators all in one place.

Gatorland is home to alligators and crocodiles of all sizes— from babies, or "grunts," to 14-footers. The park also houses the largest collection of extremely rare white leucitic alligators, plus exhibits featuring wild cats, snakes, critters, tortoises and more. Guests can also visit with goats and other farm friends in a petting zoo, watch free-flight aviary, experience animal shows and encounters, and more.

The bravest guests of Gatorland can even zip down the Screaming' Gator Zip Line over a pit of gators and ride the Stompin' Gator Off-Road Adventure.
