The Palm Beach Zoo’s Surprise Arrivals

Babies

Proving that good things come to those who wait, Fred and Wilma, the Palm Beach Zoo’s adult alligators recently celebrated the arrival of nine alligator hatchlings. While the couple had lived together in the habitat for more than a decade and Wilma had built a nest every year since 1999, these were the only fertile eggs. A member of the groundskeeping staff was the first to notice a baby alligator swimming in the habitat.

Guests are encouraged to come meet the first-time parents in the American alligator habitat located in the Florida Wetlands section of the Zoo. The baby alligators, however, are currently remaining behind-the-scenes in the Zoo’s Melvin J. & Claire Levine Animal Care Complex.

No word on whether any of the offspring will be named Pebbles.

Salt therapy is a modern variation of the Eastern European tradition of spending time in natural salt caves for health. Kaffee’s recently introduced Salt Room is the epitome of relaxation, complete with a backlit Himalayan salt wall and zero gravity chairs.  Patrons lay back and breathe in the benefits of the micronized aerosol of purified salt mist created by a state of the art Halogenerator.

According to Kaffee Keldie, ” [Dry Salt Therapy] is a non toxic, safe holistic way to relax and improve the lung function and the skin but actually the whole of the body feels refreshed so we really like to say it is a Body Wellness Therapy”.
