2-foot American Crocodile
Buddha is our smallest resident. Taken in as a hatchling due to severe emaciation. After 8 months of rehabilitation, Buddha was approved for release. Unfortunately, Buddha was found in the wild again miles away from his release point just months later in the same shape as when we originally found him. He struggles quite a lot with hunting successfully enough to sustain himself. Buddha lives in his own 300-gallon pond stocked with food for him to practice his hunting skills. If he improves and can sustain himself while retaining his fear of people, Buddha can be released, but as of now he is still in need of our assistance.
5-foot American crocodile
Jewels, our little diva, was illegally taken from the wild as a hatchling and kept as a 'pet'. Once she got to a size that she could do some serious damage, her 'owners' dumped her into a pond and left her to fend for herself. She was found by ACES seriously underweight and very eager to greet us. She is completely reliant on people for food and because she missed out on the years that are vital to learning the skills of being a wild croc, she lacks hunting skills almost entirely. Jewels lives in a 2400-gallon pond and is an ambassador for the conservation of her species.
6.5-foot Morelet's crocodile
Robbie came from a newly opened resort in the southern part of Belize.
He'd been fed by human hand for so long he'd completely lost all fear of people, so much so that we didn't even need bait to catch him! Poor Robbie expects to be fed, and since he's been in our care we've never seen evidence of him attempting to catch any of the fish or other critters that frequent his enclosure. He's a gentle soul though and we love him!
