The Colorado Gator Farm is one of Alamosa’s most unique attractions. Utilizing the geothermal waters of the valley, the owners decided to start their very own Tilapia farm in 1977. Instead of throwing away the dead fish, in 1987 they bought 100 baby alligators to take care of the fish remains naturally. These baby alligators grew fast in the warm, geothermal waters and locals started asking if they could see them. The Gator Farm opened to the public in 1990, showcasing their tilapia ponds and enormous alligators.

As time progressed the farm took on another role as an Exotic Animal Refuge. They have received dozens of unwanted, illegal, and abused reptiles from all over; giving the refuge not only alligators, but tortoises, iguanas, poisonous snakes, and giant snapping turtles. Through fundraising and educational awareness they have been able to add on to their sanctuary by including various bird species and a tropical biodome. So if the family is in the mood for an exciting adventure, take them over the Colorado Gator Farm where adventure awaits.
