For the first time in almost 30 years, there's an alligator at Reid Park Zoo.

The nine-foot male alligator arrived at the zoo from Waco, Texas on Wednesday night.

Visitors eagerly awaited its arrival during construction of its habitat and can now see this 25-year-old American alligator from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week.

It has been nearly 30 years since Reid Park Zoo has had an alligator.

The American alligator is the largest reptile that can be found in North America.
