Florida is known for its resident swamp dwellers. Head to Gator Beach to learn more about these fascinating reptiles, a species that has been alive for more than 150 million years, can grow up to 16 feet long and has an average life span of 50 to 60 years. Take a walk through the wildlife exhibits, which include more than 100 alligators and Mellow Yellow, a rare alligator with yellow skin, black stripes, yellow eyes and yellow claws. Visitors also have the opportunity to feed the alligators and get their photo taken while holding one. The Gator Guy, manager Herman Knowles, and other handlers give daily educational alligator shows.
