Sarasota Jungle Gardens, reptile show

Is there a Sarasota visitor or resident who hasn’t thrilled to petting a gator at Jungle Gardens? Alligator attractions used to dot the state, but this is one of the few places where you can still get up close and personal with Florida’s archetypal reptile. Just remember: They’re cute when they’re young; later, not so much.
