Introducing Darth Gator

Over 1600 ballots were cast to help name the Museum’s new live American Alligator! The votes are all counted and the overwhelming winner was "Darth Gator." The naming took place officially on Friday, August 15 at the final Lawn Chair Theater event of the 2014 season. Thanks to everyone who participated in the voting. Darth is currently on display in the Museum's PNC Live Animal Gallery. We hope you will come by the Children's Museum ∓ Science Center soon to welcome our newest addition!
