Named “Stallone” after famous actor Sylvester Stallone, for his misaligned jaw and crooked smile this alligator had been a local celebrity at his home in the Virginia Living Museum over the past six years.
Ready for retirement, this 40 pound 5.5 foot Alligator is now headed further down south to none only than Myrtle Beach where he will find a new sanctuary at Alligator Adventure.
Originally found by Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries officers in Virginia Beach, May 2012, Stallone has spent his past in the museum’s cypress swamp exhibit.
Check out the video below of Stallone’s first steps back when he was introduced into his exhibit in 2015, after being a program animal for 3 years!
Stallone will now spend the rest of his days surrounded in an environment full of other alligators, and as many as 200 different species in the Alligator Adventure haven.
If you are in the Myrtle Beach area, be sure to stop by and welcome Stallone to his new home as he will be arriving mid-November!
