Critchlow Alligator Sanctuary & Zoological Gardens

Critchlow Alligator Sanctuary is a place for all reptiles and amphibians to find a safe haven and proper care needed to live out their lives safely and securely. Many of the residents in the Sanctuary have come from a variety of places for a variety of reasons all needing good homes. It is David Critchlow's goal to create an Alligator Sanctuary that will become an attraction for reptile and amphibian enthusiasts, and is also a safe haven for domesticated reptiles. The goal of the Sanctuary is to continue to create a hands-on and up-close opportunity for people to observe the animals in a semi-natural environment, as well as provide a safe, clean and protected area for all the animals as well as visitors. In the fall of 2007, David purchased land to build his dream of a specialized Alligator Sanctuary just for reptiles and amphibians with an emphasis on Crocodilians. The Zoo is now open to the public daily from 10 am to 7 pm with a limited exhibits on display.
