Gatorland Provides Alligator Safety Tips

With the busy summer vacation season in full swing, Gatorland® reminds its park guests and the traveling public that any body of water in the state of Florida can be home to alligators.  Here are some important things to keep in mind:

  • Take note that we are in breeding season right now. Alligators can be very territorial and             many are on the move looking for mates.
  • When there is a drought with low water levels, this also puts alligators on the move.
  • Use extra caution in the morning or evening hours in shallow water, as alligators may think the splashing is an animal at the waters’ edge or is in distress.
  • Stay away from alligators you see in the wild and do not feed them.
  • Remember, it is against the law in the State of Florida to feed an alligator.
  • Report any alligator concerns by contacting the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission through

To learn more about alligators, crocodiles, reptiles and other animals, visit the 110-acre Gatorland theme park at 14501 S. Orange Blossom Trail, Orlando.  The park originally opened as a roadside attraction in 1949.  Today, Gatorland provides affordably-priced family fun featuring thousands of alligators and crocodiles, breeding marsh with observation tower, free flight aviary, nature walk, petting zoo, educational wildlife programs, award-winning gift shop, Florida’s best train ride, Gator Gully Splash Park, on site restaurant and one of a kind shows including Gator Wrestlin’, Gator Jumparoo and Up-close Encounters.

Another not-to-be-missed adventure is the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line with over 1,200 feet of high flying thrills, five intense zip lines, and a massive 150-foot suspension bridge.  For more Gatorland information, click here, or call 800-393-JAWS.
