Gators to stay in Topeka through October

TOPEKA, Kan. – In response to popular demand, the Topeka Zoo has arranged to keep the traveling exhibit Alligator Frenzy one more month.  The exhibit was originally scheduled to leave at the end of September but will now stay through the end of October.

“This has been a great experience for us,” Zoo Director Brendan Wiley said.  “More than 108-thousand people have experienced the alligators in a very intimate setting.  What I think people are most impressed with now is how much the gators have grown in the short time they have been here.”

Alligator Frenzy tells the story of North America’s most successful conservation project: the North American Alligator.  The exhibit includes:

  • A feeding lagoon of 40 juvenile alligators
  • Opal the white alligator
  • Photo, feeding and wading opportunities, available for additional fees
  • Other swamp inhabitants in the exhibit include an opossum, hawk, boa constrictor, leaches, frogs and turtles
