NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) - Mighty Mike, the gigantic American alligator who has called the Newport Aquarium home for the past several months is ready to move on to his next home.
The last chance for the public to see Mighty Mike at Newport Aquarium will be this weekend; May 20-22.
Mighty Mike is considered the largest alligator in the country on display outside of the state of Florida. He was on temporary loan to the Aquarium from a private collection in Florida. He leaves the Aquarium and will be transported to an outdoor exhibit at a Michigan zoo.
“We think Mighty Mike enjoyed his stay at the Newport Aquarium almost as much as our guests enjoyed seeing him here,” said Ric Urban, curator of birds and mammals at Newport Aquarium. “Feedback and reaction we received were overwhelmingly positive.
