Gator Country is an alligator theme park where guests can see the lifespan of an alligator and get up close and personal with nature’s wild. With hands on activities like holding the baby gators to helping feed them, the whole family will find something to enjoy. There's even a gift shop to bring home a souvenir from your trip! Gator Country has over 350 alligators and 4 species of crocodiles along with Caimans, alligator snapping turtles, snakes and other reptiles. It is also home to the largest alligator in captivity in Texas, “Big Al”. Weighing in at 1,000 pounds and almost 14 feet in length, Big Al is definitely Gator Country’s main attraction.
