It was a nice day for an egg hunt to be sure - but what about an alligator egg hunt? That was today's game at the Aquarium at Fort Fisher.
Over 60 kids went hunting in the gardens where alligators hid plenty of eggs. Each hunter had an assigned number, when they found it on an egg – it was theirs.
Once the hunting was done, it was time to learn - and play with a live baby alligator.
“That's why we bring out a live animal,” says activities instructor Sharon Massey. “It’s really great to kind of enforce what we're saying and kind of show that first hand.”
Each hunter was able to pet a real live baby gator. Using only two fingers though to be safe. The event continues tomorrow - but is already sold out. If you want to visit the aquarium - it will be open all weekend, even Easter Sunday.
