Cape May, NJ has a fabulous Zoo. It's not huge like some zoos, but it is very family friendly.
Each summer we spend a week in Ocean City, NJ. Cape May isn't far from there, so we take a day trip to the zoo. It's one of my favorite places to visit each year.
Gators creep me out! They always look like they are up to no good.
Sneaking up on you, waiting to grab you in their powerful jaws.
I learned a few facts from a report my son had to do when he was in elementary school.
They can live 30-50 years old!
Zoo's feed them rats.
It is Florida's official state reptile.
Even though some gators were taken off the endangered species list, they are still considered endangered because hunter cannot always tell the difference between the different types of gators.
Visit the National Parks Conservation Association to donate towards endangered species.
