Insta-Gator ranch and hatchery tour

Great educational tour. Cost was $12 per adult.

Our tour guide is showing us an alligator's throat.

Tour guide pointing to an alligator's ear.

This is the runt of the litter.

These are alligator eggs the way they are found in an
alligator's nest. The line on top is placed by
those who find the egg. It represents the top side of
the egg. When harvesting the eggs, it is very important
that the lined side stays up, otherwise the baby alligator will
drown if th egg is upside down.
