FORT MYERS, Fl. - Southwest Florida is certainly home to plenty of gators and now there are two more.
The mama alligator at the Calusa Nature Center just had babies. The two on display are ten days old and folks at the center say they could get to be as large as their parents, up to 14 feet long.
"When I went out there, sure enough one of the babies was stuck on the side of mama's head, right there. So I got out and went to where she nests and noticed that there was a whole bunch of babies that had hatched out," says Steve Masek with the Calusa Nature Center.
The Center is also holding a naming contest for the baby gators. Come put your ideas in the drawing and if it's picked, you could win a family membership to the Center.
