St Augustine Fflorida Alligators Aviary

St. Augustine Alligator Farm and Zoological Park, one of the oldest continuously running zoological attractions in Florida, is home to the only in the world complete collection of all 23 species of living crocodilians, including alligators, crocodiles, caimans and gavials. There are even dwarf crocodiles which are among the smallest in the park, reaching just under five feet when fully grown.

Reptiles are the main attraction of the park, but there's also a wading-bird rookery, an exotic-birds and mammals exhibit, and nature trails. Educational presentations are held throughout the day, including live alligator feedings. There are also ponds and marshes populated by ducks, gees, swans, herons, egrets, ibises and other native wading birds, as well as a petting zoo with pygmy goats, potbellied pigs and miniature horses. Here you can watch entertaining 20-minute alligator and reptile shows that are run every hour.

St Augustine Fflorida Alligators

Maximo is a real celebrity in the park. This Saltwater Crocodile is the largest animal in the park (15 feet 3 inches and 1250 pounds). He was born in Australia. His egg was collected and hatched by aborigines who then sold him to the Cairns Crocodile Farm in Australia. He hatched in 1971 and grew to his impressive length in less than 30 years and may live to be 60 or even 80 years old. You can have a close-up look at Maximo from the underwater viewing windows.

St Augustine Fflorida Alligator Albino

Don't leave Alligator Farm without having a look at Albino Alligators, rare and mystical. The legend says that those who gaze upon these beautiful creatures will receive good fortune. These beautiful animals are exactly the same as any other American Alligator, except for the fact that they do not have skin pigment. Among five million of American Alligators, there are less than 50 known true albinos. An albino animal has red or pink eyes and is very sensitive to sunlight, that's why a sheltered enclosure is required so that this rare animal could avoid sunburn.

Albino animals may occur in nature, but usually they become the prey of the predators at a very young age because they lack camouflage. However, in the protective environment, such as St. Augustine Alligator Farm and Zoological Park, they can grow to be large adults. It is curious, but the parents of these albino alligators are of a typical dark color.

Don't miss the Komodo Dragon new exhibit based around animals that can be found within the range of a Saltwater crocodile, Crocodylus porosus. The largest in the zoo exhibit displays an impressive list of birds and reptiles, including the imposing Double-wattled Cassowary, considered the most dangerous bird in the world. And even though it is not a reptile, the cassowary looks as much like a dinosaur as anything on the planet. The reptile list for this new expansion includes a King Cobra, a Reticulated Python , Lace Monitors, Crocodile Monitors, Green Tree Pythons, Knob-tailed Geckos, Centralian Carpet Pythons, Black-headed Pythons, Temple Vipers, and of course a beautiful Komodo Dragon! In addition to the Cassowary the birds include: Palawan Peacock pheasants, Kookaburras, Palm Cockatoo, Red-sided Eclectus, and more.

St Augustine Fflorida Alligator Pond

Explore the native swamp exhibit that extends over two acres of natural wetlands - home to around 150 American Alligators and many native turtles. During the non-breeding season many birds fly into the swamp in the evening to roost, or sleep. These birds seek out evening roosts above the alligators, knowing that alligators will keep tree-climbing predators away. Here herons, egrets, ibis, spoonbills, and wood storks can be seen in their natural environment. From April through July the birds are in full breeding plumage and the visitors can even watch them building nests and raising families.
