Gatorland Welcomes Bonecrusher 2–One BIG Gator
How the heck do you transport a 15-foot alligator from one park to another?
Verrrryyy carefully. Just watch the video at the link below, which shows the recent arrival of Bonecrusher 2 to Gatorland in Orlando. Check out the number of people who have to transport him–then again, you’d probably have a few hands on deck if you had to move a 1,400-lb. gator.
Bonecrusher 2 was moved to Gatorland after Everglade Wonder Gardens in Bonita Springs closed in April. He’s a direct descendant of the original Bonecrusher who lived at Gatorland in the 1950s and 1960s till his death in 1971. He was thought to be the largest alligator in captivity.
The park’s new arrival lived at Everglade Wonder Gardens for 45 years. If you see him, make sure you stand back–he can jump seven feet out of the water.
