See you there!

Claude, the Academy’s albino alligator, will celebrate his “golden birthday” in September– that is, he’s turning 15 on the 15th day of the month. Visit between Sept. 8-15 and help us celebrate with gator-themed craft activities in the Naturalist Center (located on Level 3, near the planetarium exit). Make an alligator-inspired birthday hat, or color in a birthday cake for Claude. After all, just because his “birthday suit” is all white, that doesn’t mean his cake has to be!

Then, on Wednesday, Sept. 15 at 9:30am, gather around the Swamp for a rousing chorus of “Happy Birthday,” and watch as aquarium staff present the reptilian star with cupcakes made of gator chow, and decorated with tasty fruit and flowers. Do you share a birthday with Claude (9/15/1995)? Let us know, and tell us what your favorite b-day treat is (probably not gator chow!).”
