Mote extends warm welcome to its cool crocodilians

Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium would like to thank its Board of Trustees, sponsors, members and others who have made “The Teeth Beneath” a truly special, new exhibit at Mote Aquarium.

Mote’s new scaly friends, an American alligator and three spectacled caiman, made their public debut on Feb. 25.
To give these cute (but not cuddly) animals a warm welcome into the Mote family and celebrate the generosity of Mote's exhibit sponsors, Mote Trustees, sponsors and other guests came together Wednesday evening, Feb. 22, for a special early viewing of the exhibit.
