Arkansas Alligator Farm and Petting Zoo


This place has been handling alligators since 1902. There are about 150 of the critters here—you can even pet one—and summer months see feeding shows. A small museum has natural history exhibits, including a skeleton of a purported merman; a petting zoo has deer, sheep, llamas, and other docile animals; and other zoo areas feature lemurs, primates, a mountain lion, and more.
