Watch Gatorland amusement park’s “School of Croc” on Mondays through Saturdays during the pandemic!

If you’ve got kids who need a little something different for their morning curriculum or if you just want to see what one of Florida’s best low-rent amusement parks is up to in these quarantined times, check out Gatorland’s “School of Croc” every Monday through Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m.!

Gatorland is located in Orlando, and it’s the perfect down-home antidote to the better-known, larger, more corporate offering of Universal Studios and Disney. As its name implies, it’s a park with lots of reptiles: over 2,000 alligators and crocodiles (there’s a difference), along with other animals suited to Central Florida’s subtropical climate. I’ve been there, and it’s fun, as has Kevin Smith:

Gatorland may be deserted while tourists are staying at home and sitting out the pandemic, but they’re still paying their full- and part-time employees to take care of the animals and maintain the place. Better still, they’re providing a virtual experience through their Facebook page in the form of a regular show called School of Croc. Today marks their 40th episode. Not only can you watch it, but you can ask their reptile experts questions, too!
