If you’re thinking of a unique and unforgettable birthday party for your child, how about a pool party with alligators swimming with the kids?
Call this a crazy idea but this sure does make some splash (and a bite), a man from Florida, USA is offering a one-of-a-kind entertainment for children’s parties – alligators in your backyard pool.
For $120, Bob Barrett, from Tampa Bay, takes an alligator to people’s home or any preferred party venue to swim with their children.
“It just took off like wildfire,” he told during an interview with the Tampa Bay Times. “Everybody loves having the gator pool parties.”
Barrett, who runs the local Alligator Attraction, came up with the idea to compensate the business lost he experienced last summer
“If you’re nine, ten or 11 years old, you’ve already had the ‘jumparoo’ house, the bounce house, you’ve had the pizza party, you’ve had the clown party,” he said.
“You get to have a pool party with a gator. It’s a very popular party.”
To guarantee a safe experience with his pets, Barrett tapes the alligators’ mouths shut before the parties.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission confirmed he isn’t doing anything illegal, but added: “We will say that this is not something that we encourage.”
“This is safe,” Barret insists.
