Full description

Pre-book your entry ticket to the Alligator & Wildlife Discover Center in Florida to get up close and personal with over 200 animals. You’ll get to see crocodilians, tortoises, lizards, snakes, tarantulas, small mammals, aquatic life, lemurs, and sloths while learning more about these fascinating creatures.

As you enter the center, you’ll immediately see alligators and caimans from 3 to 6 years old. Also in the main room are albino alligators, saltwater crocodiles, a Nile crocodile, mini pigs, a lemur, tortoises, and raccoons.

Enter the aquarium showcasing Africa, the Amazon, and the Atlantic Ocean. See stingrays, a shark, and a live coral farm. To the right of this area is the lizard room, with over 20 different species, the largest being Slash, the ornate monitor.

In another room, get introduced to Flash, a Hoffman's two-toed sloth. There are also frogs from around the world, Argentine Taegu's, monitors, tarantulas, and scorpions in this room. There’s, even more, to explore in the next two rooms featuring snake and small mammal habitats.

If you’d like to marvel at scenes of a slithering reptile, visit Jasper the albino Columbia red tail. Enrich your visit by interacting with some of the animals (not included in general admission), including feeding, holding, and even kissing an alligator.

Along with your entry ticket, you can upgrade the experience for you and your group by booking a private group tour before opening hours. The attraction will be closed for 1 hour prior to opening so you can interact with some of the species during a one-of-a-kind experience.

Get guided by a staff member through the different rooms and displays to get an inside looker at the various species that call this facility home. Throughout the tour, you’ll enjoy 1-on-1 interactions with a variety of species, including even kissing a gator.

It was a very interesting and informative adventure for me. The people that work there were great in explaining everything about the alligators, and other wildlife. I was impressed with the young man who shared so much information on the coral and how it grew. The young woman who walked with me through all the alligators, also very young crocodiles knew so much. I wish I could retain all the information. It was a awesome experience. Thank You.
