Check out the "pearly whites" on Cyprus! With a smile like this, he could be the next Colgate model!
However, Cyprus is an alligator. He doesn't model. And this probably is not a smile. It is just his polite way of saying "keep your distance, sweet cheeks."
Cyprus and his friends are part of the new "American Alligator" exhibit at Maymont Nature Center. The baby gators will make their public debut on Saturday, August 2 - two will be on display, and three will make appearances during environmental education programs for the public and schools.
In addition to the alligator exhibit, visitors will be able to watch fish and turtle feeding demonstrations at 12 noon, and otter training at 2:30 p.m. Guests can also see lined seahorses, Hippocampus erectus, a species native to the Chesapeake Bay that is also new to the Nature Center animal family.
Admission to the Nature Center is $3 for adults and youth ages 13 and older; $2 for children ages 4 to 12 and seniors ages 60 and older. Admission is free for Maymont members.
