  • Gary Saurage

    Gary Saurage is a co-owner of Gator Country as well as the head alligator handler. After a tour in the U.S. Air Force, he came to Beaumont, Texas, and started a career in law enforcement, which lasted 18 years. After running a very successful alligator guide/hunting service for years, he turned to the conservation of reptiles. As a result of his building Gator Country, a 15-acre reservation for alligators, crocodiles and snakes, Saurage has participated in many studies on the American alligator, and he holds one of only a few nuisance alligator-hunting permits in the state of Texas. He has most recently been featured on the Animal Planet series River Monsters and has been nominated for Animal Planet's hero of the year.
