American Alligator Set To Take Centre Stage at Scarborough Sea Life Centre

Daisy the American Alligator

Scarborough Sea Life Centre is preparing for the first frightful event of its kind.


For one week only guests to the centre will have the opportunity to come face to face with some of the worlds most feared predators.

Daisy the American Alligator, John the Reticulated Python and other appropriately named creatures are set to take centre stage at the new Face Your Fears event starting Monday, 26th Oct until Sunday, 1st Nov.

Aquarist Jordan Woodhead said:

"We are thrilled to be able to give our guests the opportunity to get closer than ever before to these amazing creatures in a safe and controlled environment. American Alligators are native to South Eastern America and can grow over 4 metres long so this really is a one of kind chance to come close to Daisy who is currently still a juvenile."

"In the wild American Alligators are facing conservation challenges due to the growing popularity of skinned goods such as boots and handbags. We are privileged to have Daisy as the perfect ambassador to help educate the public about the dangers surrounding these incredible creatures."

Common perception is such creatures pose a dangerous threat to humans however, this October Half Term the centre will highlight the horrors that pollution, habitat loss and other human follies are inflicting on the natural world.

Jordan added:

"Face Your Fears aims to inspire and educate guests about conservation issues surrounding amazing creatures throughout the globe. A specially designed reptile den will be accessible throughout the day for guests to come and view the creatures, and twice daily we will be giving a talk and handling demonstration for adult guests wishing to hold commonly feared creatures such as Tarantulas."
