My grandson wanted to go to Croc Encounter.

Living in Tampa was okay during the winter, but not in the summer.

  • It didn’t matter where you lived, you still had your complaints about the summer heat.

My complaint included the humidity, and without air conditioning, I couldn’t survive. When my grandson started begging to go to Croc Encounter Reptile Park and Wildlife Center, I wasn’t overly enthusiastic. I wanted to stay home and veg, but he never asked to do anything. I couldn’t tell him no, so I told him to get his shower and get dressed and we would go for lunch. He told me they had rescued crocodiles, snakes, lizard, turtles, tortoises, and amphibians. He was telling me all about Amos, an American alligator. He said he got his name from the owner’s son. He was more interested in the alligator wrestling tour. You got to see a man and alligator wrestle, and they did some really fun stunts, but he wasn’t sure what stunts they were. I didn’t know what some of the animals were, like the broad-snouted Caiman and the black and white Tegu, but Billy said we would find out when we got there, He knew about the Nile crocodile, Cane toad, and Cuban tree frog, because he ‘learned’ them while in school. I was glad they had an indoor venue so we could get out of the heat, but I had to admit that I had a lot of fun with Billy that day. It was my first trip to Croc Encounter, and I couldn’t have thought of anyone better for my first time than with my grandson Billy.
