American Alligators, Thunder & Lightning


Symbolically adopt our American Alligator couple, Thunder & Lightning!

Thunder & Lightning are our favorite cold-blooded couple!  They love basking on their shore, or relaxing in their pool.  On special occasions, they get a tough, red ball to play with.  If you're lucky, you might be at the Zoo at just the right time to see them munch on some delicious rodents--yum yum!  

American Alligators from the Virginia-North Carolina border down through Florida.  Alligators live in swamps, marshes, rivers, lakes, and small bodies of freshwater.   Their eyes and nostrils are located on top of their snouts to allow them to lie unnoticed, with their bodies totally submerged in water.
