Alligator Retirement

Miss Sippi, our American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) has retired at the ripe old age of five. She arrived at the RPSEC as a hatchling in 2003 and has been used in thousands of educational programs over the years. She has, unfortunately, outgrown us. Miss Sippi retired in May and moved to Alligator Adventure in Myrtle Beach where she will surely enjoy a larger habitat, larger prey items, and the company of other alligators. Two of her younger siblings, Georgia and Louie, will continue to reside at the RPSEC.
