“I love animals that want to kill me.” That's the passion for reptiles you'll find at Colorado Gators Reptile Park in Mosca, Colorado. About a 200 mile drive south of Denver will not only take care of that cooped up feeling but will introduce you to an outdoor experience unlike any other.

Oh, that quote about loving the animals that kill you? That's from Jay Young, GM at Colorado Gators Reptile Park. His love of animals is infectious and there's plenty to learn and discover for the whole family.
