3 Gators and a Great Lakes Aquarium

Three juvenile American Alligators are now calling the Great Lakes Aquarium home — at least for a year.

The gators are on loan from a Texas facility called Crocodile Encounters. The Great Lakes Aquarium has prepared a space specifically for their size and wants to make sure they stay comfortable in their quarters. In a year, they’ll have the option to renew the loan.

Duluth.com stopped by this week to check out the new reptilian tenants, which seem to be doing swimmingly.
