Your visit to Mississippi Aquarium begins here. Watch our alligators swim in their habitat, complete with an island that makes the perfect spot for our gators to catch some sun.
The American alligator is Mississippi's state reptile and the largest reptile in the United States.
They have 80 teeth that get replaced several times throughout their lifetime.
Alligators stop feeding when the ambient temperature drops below 70°F, and become dormant below 55°F.
