new baby alligator

This is our new alligator to be used for education programs. He/she lives behind the scenes, so I thought I would give you a sneak peak. This little one hatched in September 2008.
You can see he/she fits in my hand quite easily and is not much bigger than a dollar bill.
You can see our new exhibit alligators in Carolina Wildlife. These three ‘gators were hatched in September 2007 and are much bigger than this little one.
The four of them arrived this past Monday after our last four alligators grew to big for us and were returned home to Florida this past Saturday by Larry.

    Do you return the alligators to the wild in Florida? If so, do they adjust to life in the wild well? Do you track them to see their progress?

    Anonymous (and others):The alligators were on loan to us from the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. It's basically a zoo.If you go to Larry's post from November 21, you can see pictures of our alligators in their new home with other 'gators at the "zoo".
