As kids, David Castilla and his older brother Gil loved everything about snakes and reptiles.  Growing up in Tampa, Florida, the boys’ passion eventually led to jobs working with snakes at a local theme park.  It was there that they were first exposed to alligators.   The brothers eventually turned their love for the large reptiles into a traveling show.  

VPR’s Nina Keck caught up with David Castilla performing his midday alligator show at the Vermont State Fair.
