Lets See How They Grow! Gator Edition

Since the opening of The Reptile Zoo we have been lucky enough to add 4 American Alligators of various sizes to our collection. The first gators to become part of The Reptile Zoo family were Gomer and Pyle who were each two years old and about 2 feet long. 

Next we welcomed Darthgator a five year old 4 foot male gator. Since coming to The Reptile Zoo Gomer and Pyle have grown to almost the same size as Darthgator when he first arrived. Growth in American Alligators is an indicator that the animals are in the correct habitat and maintaining a healthy diet. Here at The Reptile Zoo our gator friends like to each chicken and lots of it. 

Gomer and Pyle prefer chicken legs while Darthgator has moved on to full chicken breasts. Which is represented in Darthgator's growth to reach at least 6 feet in length with an impressive girth.

A couple months ago our final gator addition came in the smallest package, Davey a petit yearling American Alligator. Davey is still eating goldfish, but is just about large enough to move up to a larger prey soon!

Now that you have seen the before and after photos you'll have to come to The Reptile Zoo and visit these growing giants!
