Meet the Animal: Capone the Alligator Snapping Turtle

We have many very spe-shell reptile residents who call our Zoo home, but few have been around as long as Capone. Capone, who has been a member of the Zoo for about 15 years, is our 57-year-old alligator snapping turtle whose habitat is tucked to the side near our alligators and crested caracara in the Wild Florida loop.

Spooktacular Animals with Tricks and Treats

We have a few animal residents who are a little tricky and maybe a little spooky too! Read on for some Halloween-themed fun.

HOW old is that turtle?

If the turtle you spot in our Zoo looks particularly good for their age, well, they just might be doing pretty well for their age too!
