The alligator is frequently confused with the crocodile, and infrequently confused with the moped. Take this Groupon for a spin.

The Alligator Attraction
It turns out baby alligators are pretty cute when there's no chance they're going to bite you. That's what people learn when they visit the Alligator Attraction, where they feed the seven-inch creatures from a safe distance by dangling fishing poles off an overhead bridge. Visitors can also come in for a closer interaction by handling the gators, cradling them in their arms and smooching their snouts. These animals are slightly larger—the center's 50 gators are 18 to 48 inches long—but the interaction is still safe because the gators' jaws are securely taped shut.
There are other animals to behold and interact with, too. Visitors feed koi fish from baby bottles, and they line up to greet rescue animals such as Becca the Australian blue-tongued skink and Buddy & Blackbeard, the "bearded dragons." Outside of the small zoo, personnel bring two alligators to house parties, where they may be held and participate in supervised games with the children.

“This is a great attraction to do while waiting on one of the tour boats to go out. The staff is really helpful and friendly. My daughter enjoyed feeding the alligators with the fishing pole and hotdogs and she very much enjoyed holding the alligators! We loved it!”
“Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Fun little attraction.”
