Established in 2006, Gators and Friends was created to increase awareness among the public of different types of animals, their habitat, lifestyle, and survival techniques. Although our exotic petting farm may be new, our love for animals is not! We have been in the wildlife business for over 30 years! Everything from Alligators to Zebras can be found here, and we want to share our experience and the beauty of these animals with as many visitors as possible. Our goal is to educate the public on the proper care and understanding of animals that individuals may encounter on a daily basis, whether it is the family’s pet hamster or the family of gray squirrels that nest in the backyard. Our mission at Gators and Friends is to present an educational and interactive animal adventure like no other. Education is the key to preserving these animals for future generations to enjoy. Our small but unique petting zoo is the perfect location for your next get-together. We are fully licensed by…
