Baby Crocs in Newport

Newport Aquarium is doing its part to help a rare, endangered species.

Gator Alley at Newport Aquarium is currently home to three baby Orinoco crocodiles. Visitors can watch the crocs grow big over the next two years. Once the crocodiles reach approximately three feet in length, they will be transported to Venezuela in hopes of repopulating the dwindling species in the wild.

Learn more about the crocodiles at the Newport Aquarium (1 Aquarium Way, Newport) and get your tickets at or call 1-800-406-3474.
