A new batch of baby gators just hatched at Orlando International Airport, offering visitors fresh off their flights the real Florida experience.

The airport tweeted about the new additions and their mother, calling out April the giraffe, the viral sensation who finally had her baby over the weekend.



When concerned travelers asked about the babies making their way onto runways and taxi-pickups, OIA reassured the Twittersphere.

"As with all wildlife on property, our biologist and team do all they can to ensure [the gators'] safety while maintaining the safety of passengers," OIA wrote.
