Saturday 31st July saw the arrival of two young male American Alligators that were sourced from The Australian Reptile Park at Gosford, NSW. They currently measure nearly 1 metre in length and will eventually grow to over 4 metres.
American Alligators are better equipped to deal with cooler conditions than any other crocodilian however we have constructed a heated pool for them (with the help of Grampian Pools and Spas) and they will have the choice of indoor heating or for those sunnier days there is an outdoor basking area.
The American Alligators join the 450 plus other animals at Halls Gap Zoo, including the ever popular meerkats who have proven to be a hit with all ages.
Sponsorship from several business, service clubs and private individuals is very much appreciated and this month we would like to thank Howdens of Stawell and Designs n’ Signs for their on-going support.
