Colorado Gators Reptile Park Reviews
We enjoyed our visit at Colorado Gators. My grandson liked all the reptiles especially holding the gator. more »
We’ve been visiting Alamosa for the last 12 years and seen the signs many times, finally got to visiting and it was fab!!!! Lovely to hear that they rescue so many gators and crocs and other... more »
Great place to visit and learn about alligators and other reptiles. I opted for the gator wrestling class. You don't actually wrestle gators. You help catch them, inspect them for wounds, and apply antibiotic to any wounds they have. Drew was the guy who did the class. He did a fantastic job of teaching me how to properly catch and handle gators. While handling Gators is never completely safe, I never felt that I was in excessive danger. My wife and I had a lot of fun. It was an amazing experience. And I absolutely love that they rescue gators and give them homes.
This place was awesome! It was not too far from our hotel, so we stopped in after seeing all the signs. We weren't disappointed! The staff was very friendly and helpful, including a young boy that we assumed was related to someone working there. :) We saw all kinds of animals and fish, not just alligators. They also let you hold "Gus", a baby alligator, and have your picture taken as well. Good times!
