The alligator seemed to be a hit with the students.

"Look, he’s smiling," one student said as she saw the baby gator’s teeth.

Garris said the presentations are designed to teach the students about the animals and their habitat.

"We really want to hit home with conservation messages," she said. "We want to help people understand what they can do to help out the animals that live around them."
