We're obsessed with alligators here at Wild Florida. If you love gators as much as we do, then you're probably excited to bring home some awesome alligator-themed gifts from your trip. Here are four Florida gifts every visitor should take home to show their friends and family.
While they may not rank the highest on being the most friendly or cuddliest animals, alligators are certainly one of the most fascinating, dare we say... coolest animals out there. From the power behind their jaws and the agility these animals showcase in the water, it's no surprise why tourists and locals alike are so drawn to learn more about them. Everglades airboat rides are certainly one of the coolest ways to view alligators, but, it's not your only option. You'll find our Gator Pond in the heart of our Gator Park (what some may call an alligator park) full of over 100 rescued and Wild.
With Florida's population growing year after year, humans and alligators are running into each other more frequently. Because of these meet-ups (whether they're intentional or not), the state of Florida has created laws on how humans should handle, approach, and interact with alligators. In this blog, we go over three Florida alligator laws every Floridan should know.
You may know of the Dog Whisperer (aka Cesar Milan), but have you ever heard of a gator whisperer? Meet Andrew Biddle. We're used to training dogs to sit and parrots to mimic our favorite catchphrases, but Andrew doesn't limit his training to the cute and cuddly species of the animal kingdom. In this blog, we'll introduce you to Andrew Biddle, who is a member of our Croc Squad, along with giving you some insight on what his day-to-day at Wild Florida looks like with training our animals, specifically with our American alligators and saltwater crocodiles!
