Besides alligators, the attraction has a few other animals and a museum, of sorts.
Contact / Hours:
They claim to be open year round, but there's no reason to visit when the temperatures are cool. Reptiles are sluggish and don't eat when it's cool.
Hours: 9:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Alligator feedings are Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at noon during the warmer months of the year. That's the time to go, but it can get crowded when the tourist season is high. Try to find a spot early. They feed the larger alligators off the dock, so keep that in mind.
Children 12 and 1nder is $5.50
Children 2 and under are free
They have group rates. Call for more information.
This is a roadside zoo, and any of the negative reviews I have been about the "small barren cages" of the primates, not the condition or care of the alligator stars. That being said, the animals appear well cared for (08/2010), the facility is USDA licensed and the staff is friendly, seem caring and open to questions.
They also have the famous Arkansas merman in there. More about him in the next section.
A terrier headstone sits in one of the alligator enclosures that claims a pet was eaten in 1906 (see the gallery).
There are a few great signs here, including one that says the alligators in the enclosure are best suited for purses and belts (see the gallery).
You won't find any of that at the Little Rock Zoo!
