I really enjoy animal theme parks since animals provide an unknown and spotinatity that can't be found with roaler coasters and scripted shows. The park is actually quite large, but due to limited time we saw very little of it. They rescue aligators and crocodiles from all over Florida. They actually have a rather large are of land considering their location and they must have around 2000 gators. The pictures below are from the gator jumping show. No, you are not seeing incorrectly, they are feeding them whole chickens to get them to jump! The strangest thing about Gatorland is that Gator is served at the local restaurant!
I did not notice this until I looked closer at the picture once I loaded the pictures on my computer, but his gator is missing half of his mouth. I guess he should have given up smiling sooner. I am not really sure the reason for his disfigurement, but I would assume that due to this he (or she) would be unable to survive int he wild. The second is a close-up of the first.
