Alligators & Crocodiles: The Fight to Survive

Revered for their unmatched strength and respected for their tenacity, alligators and crocodiles are among the most impressive reptiles on the planet!

Come see these massive animals up close at our new exhibit, Alligators & Crocodiles: The Fight to Survive presented by Central Indiana Honda Dealers.

Included FREE with your Zoo membership, this outdoor habitat highlights two species — the American alligator and the Orinoco crocodile. But how will you tell them apart? The answer is right on the nose! Alligators have a broad, U-shaped snout while crocodiles have a narrow snout shaped like V.
