Spring really is the season of renewal at Gatorland, where new beginnings are hitting this decades-old reptilian theme park.
The nearly 74-year-old, 110-acre park is one of the area's most coveted "Weird Florida" roadside attractions, offering tourists and locals alike wild thrills and wild animals. It dates back to well before Walt Disney World's time, when Orlando was just getting a taste of the tourism hotspot it would soon become.
Now, Gatorland has welcomed three baby goats, all recently born at the park to moms Gertrude and Charlotte. Salt, Pepper and Nutmeg are all reportedly already running around and partaking in goat yoga. (Is it still goat yoga if a goat is doing it?)
Once grown, the babies will weigh close to 60 pounds. But for now, the little ones are only about a foot tall and 10 pounds each. They're seen hopping around and hanging out with their tortoise neighbor Kendrick.
You can visit these new kids daily at Gatorland's Allie's Barnyard Petting and Feeding zoo.
Also new to the park is Winchester, an 11-and-a-half-foot-long rescue alligator. Winchester moved into the home of the notoriously naughty, dog-eating alligator Chester, who died earlier this year.
Next up: Croc Rock is a brand-new 32-foot rock climbing wall open now. Climbers are encouraged to check out views of the land and the capybara population below them.
The wall was designed to mimic Florida sandstone to give climbers that natural
After the climb, guests are met with a 150-foot-long rope bridge that leads to a 350-foot-long zip line. We recommend taking a crack at this one only if you're brave enough.
