See the result of 200 million years of predatory evolution and learn about one of nature’s oldest and stealthiest hunters: crocodilians. This unique exhibition educates guests on the history and significance of these creatures using live reptiles and realistic models. Interactive elements allow visitors to test their strength against a crocodile’s bite and see how they use sound waves to make water dance. A life-size model tells the story of Gomek, the largest crocodile ever exhibited in North America, and how he became a symbol of crocodile conservation. A “digital curator” reveals the behavior and intricate social lives of these animals. See alligator fossils found at the Montbrook dig site in nearby Levy County, Florida, and the skull of one of the University of Florida’s last live mascots.
