Something snappy is returning to Stone Zoo!

Alligator Box

This Memorial Day weekend, Stone Zoo will welcome back a few scaly faces with toothy grins as the American alligator exhibit opens for the season.

The American alligator exhibit, located within the Alfred Huang North American Crane Exhibit, will feature three alligators, which range in size from 5 to 7 feet in length. This exhibit space offers visitors a chance to view these incredible creatures and observe them as they move throughout their pool and bask in the sun.

The American alligator exhibit is a permanent seasonal exhibit at Stone Zoo. Visitors will be able to see the alligators on exhibit into the early fall. In addition to the large adult alligators, visitors will also be able to see “gators” up close with the four smaller animals, measuring 1 foot long each, that will be featured during daily education encounters at the exhibit.
