Lilly's comming out party Feeding Lilly Halloween Christmas

Feeding Lilly

Lilly is a American Alligator. She is five feet long and weighs about 60 pounds. According to Wikipedia: An alligator is a crocodilian in the genus Alligator of the family Alligatoridae. There are two extant alligator species the American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) and the Chinese alligator (Alligator sinensis).

Below is a video of the lovely Adele Ashley Peoples feeding Lilly in the Clark's Fish Camp Gator Exhbit called Lilly's Pad. Ashley feeds Lilly during the Gators active season. To find out when we will be feeding Lilly, check our facebook page for feeding announcements.

In the advent of Fall we slow down on feeding Lilly and drop the temperature in her enclosure to simulate her being in the outside environment. This causes Lilly to hibernate like she would in the wild. Because Lilly is a reptile and therefore cold blodded, she dosen't go to sleep like a bear when she hybernates, she just slows down her activity and get very, very lethargic. 

If you want to come see Ashly feed Lilly during the Fall and Winter months, please check our facebook page for announcements of her feedings.
