Help Us Welcome the American Alligator

The largest reptiles in North America, American alligators, are native to freshwater rivers, lakes, swamps and marshes in the southeastern U.S. — and now they also call Georgia Aquarium home. In this thrilling new exhibit, you’ll get glass-bottom views of the gators — including our rare albinos— as well as up-close and personal peeks at their frenzied feeding habits and apex-predator teeth.

Animal Fact

The sex of alligator hatchlings is determined by the temperature of the nest during incubation. Warmer temperatures produce males, while cooler temperatures produce females.
