If you ever make it down to the Sand Dunes in Colorado there is a quick side trip to the Alligator Rescue that's worth the trip (especially if you have boys!). The rescue takes in alligators and other reptiles that didn't work out as pets (duh!) or needed a new home for some other reason. We spent about an hour there. It was an hour well spent where the boys got to hold an alligator, pet snakes and a large tortoise, and see a variety of other creatures.
