Gatorama will host its 16h annual “Alligator Hatching Festival” beginning Aug. 17 through Sept. 2 at the animal park at 10665 U.S. Highway 27, Palmdale, Fla.
It is the time of year that chirping, grunting and snapping baby alligators emerge from their shells to meet the world!
Visitors to Gatorama will also be able to learn about the history of the American alligator and how the populations have been protected through one of the most truly successful, sustainable-use management programs ever implemented. American alligators have been off the endangered species list since 1987 and populations are still growing. Alligator farming is an important part of the program.
Hatching times are listed on Gatorama’s website. Reservations open Aug. 1.
Gatorama opened in 1957 as one of Florida’s first alligator attractions. It is still a popular tourist attraction as well as an operating alligator farm.
