St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park

St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park

Don`t leave Florida without seeing at least one gator! And who needs one gator, when you can have over a hundred? The Alligator Farm doesn`t just have gators, though. They also have pythons, lemurs, Komodo dragons, exotic birds, and some of Florida`s own wildlife. Take one of the zipline courses, and if you`re brave enough try the Dark Side of the Moon course that takes place at night!
