Gator Country is located off Interstate 10 in Beaumont, Texas. In 2005, Gary Saurage, the founder of Gator Country, opened our doors to the public to come out and see live-captured nuisance alligators and other reptiles. Gary and his team are known for rescuing nuisance alligators from people’s backyards, ponds, swimming pools, as well as gators stranded after severe weather like hurricanes and floods. Our team of experts round them up, willing or not, and bring them to safety at Gator Country, a 15 acre preserve that has become a safe haven for alligators and several other reptiles. We house Big Al, an 84-year-old alligator who held the former record for being the largest alligator in captivity in Texas measuring in at 13 feet 4 inches and weighing more than 1,000 lbs. On October 5th, 2016, we rescued Big Tex, who now holds the National record for the largest live-captured nuisance alligator measuring in at 13 feet 8 ½ inches.
