Gator Castle


I actually don't know what kind of animals were "living" in this castle. I can tell you this, the moat surrounding it was filled with alligators. Hope whoever the residents were got along well with the gators!

cela doit etre efficace des alligators en tant que chien de garde, cela doit faire fuir les voleurs ;)

That is pretty unusual. I wonder what the story is.

Well, when I was a child in Jackson, that was the monkey house -- the castle was filled with monkeys. I think they eventually became sick and died off -- they moved the monkeys to their present display, near the entrance. After the monkeys, I believe there were many flamingos there. Interesting now that its the domain of alligators!

What a lovely castle for gators!

It's a fairy tale setting, waiting for a legend to be spun about the place.

MK: Thanks for the explanation. In other sad news, the elephants were also sold to the Memphis zoo in summer 2010. The zoo just couldn't afford their upkeep anymore. This zoo probably won't be around forever.

That is a castle I will not visit! Good for safekeeping though...
