Vacation Day 8 part 1

We started day eight at the GatorLand park. You read it right, they have an alligator park in Florida. It was, shall we say, VERY interesting. We watched some gator wrestling, feeding frenzies, and people having tarantula's and snakes put in their hands unexpectedly. Here are some photos and a short video clip.

Here we are at the opening to the park

This guy was really keeping an eye on us

Some people from the audience holding a Burmese python (as you can see none of us volunteered)


Some gators trying to get out of the sun, it was a very hot, humid day
