The Colorado Gator Farm is an exotic animal rescue located four hours from Denver near Alamosa, CO. It is a family-run ecosystem for reptiles using practical and environmental-friendly resources to educate visitors about its hundreds of inhabitants.
The gator farm in Colorado features rattlesnakes, pythons, ostriches, emus, fish and over 300 gators. The most recent addition is Mr. Bo Mangles, an albino alligator. Geothermal pools on the farm keep the gators warm during the winter and they even climb up on the snow to sunbathe. These warm pools invite over 125 different species of bird to the area, making it a spectacular home to all sorts of wildlife.
Visitors to the Colorado Gator Farm can get their pictures taken holding an alligator or feeding them with one of the giant carp in Two Mile Creek. Fishers and kids alike can participate in catch and release fishing in Two Mile Creek or feed the carp. This gator farm is also home to the Rocky Mountain White Tilapia Farm and a Bio Dome.
The bio dome provides a tropical rain forest for the Mosa, CO region and grows 62 different types of bamboo, which can be purchased on-site. Colorado Gator Farm strives to educate people in Colorado about gators and other reptiles on site or at local schools.
This large gator farm in Colorado is also home to its very own movie star, Morris the Alligator. Morris has starred in Alligator 1 & 2, Blues Brothers 2000, Doctor Doolittle 2, Eraser, Happy Gilmore, Interview with a Vampire, The Tonight Show with Steve Irwin and many more.
