penguin chick pictureHI EVERYBODY!!

We don't have a lot of things to worry about down here in Antarctic. Just the occasional polar bear and LOTS of cold winds and snow. It looks like the folks in Florida, where Phil and Angie went a little while ago have more to deal with then we do. I hope they had fun while they were there!

See you later!

Gatorland originally started in 1947 as the Florida Wildlife Institute, featuring a variety of snakes,
birds and of course, alligators. After going through a couple of name changes,
it became known as Gatorland in 1954. It has since grown into a world-wide recognized place to come
visit, observe and interact with these creatures of the Florida Everglades.
