Touch and hold | Up close and personal
Venture into Fort Gator to meet our two adult American Alligators, Brutus, our 500-pound, 11-foot male, and Glades, our 7-foot, 190-pound female. You’ll get to learn all about these modern-day dinosaurs and how they are important to our ecosystem here in Florida. During the Spring and Summer, guests even get the opportunity to feed them!
