Bayou Babies

Bayou Babies have joined the family at Newport Aquarium!

Dozens of adorable baby American alligators are exploring their new home in Gator Alley, which replicates a cypress swamp like those found in Florida and Louisiana.

Alligators thrive in the warm, humid temperatures of the bayou, so this new home is a perfect nursery for the Bayou Babies. 

The hatchlings are about one month old. At only six inches long, they’re smaller than a baby bottle but have big bright eyes and a growing sense of adventure.
