It' time to head out to the field and channel your inner Paleontologist! Our Big Gator Fossil Dig is a dig site where participants are challenged with the task of excavating the remains of Gators!  No replica or plastic bones here, this is the real thing. Using field tools, Paleontologists will excavate, assemble and identify their findings to the field chief on duty.  

Genuine specimens are on display in the Field Station and visitors are encouraged to touch, photograph and study these magnificent creatures. Participants will walk away with a souvenir to help them jump start their home collection.

South Florida has one of the most diverse marine ecosystems in the world.  With 3 sides of our state being surrounded by water, fishing is a way of life.  Here at Gatorama, we invite you to wrap up your visit to the park with a good 'ol time at our Fishin' Hole.  We supply the pole and the bait, you supply the memories.  To protect our animals, we will not allow outside poles or bait.
