This live alligator swamp cam overlooks the swamp at St. Augustine’s Alligator Farm Zoological Park in Florida, where native herons, egrets, roseate spoonbills, and wood storks seek the security of the swamp to roost and raise their young. With hundreds of alligators swimming beneath the oak branches, the resident birds know their young are safe from tree-climbing predators such as raccoons, opossums, and feral cats.
The St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park began as a small exhibition of Florida reptiles in the late nineteenth century. Despite its name, St. Augustine does not farm alligators or any other animals; it functions as a modern zoo serving the public and the scientific community with educational shows and exhibits, research, and worldwide conservation efforts. This quintessential Florida attraction, which has been accredited by the American Association of Zoos and Aquariums since 1989, includes an alligator lagoon, crocodile crossing and a thrilling zip-line between them
Best Times to Watch the Live Alligator Swamp Cam
