Gators take a road trip
Toothy grins: National Aquarium staff Kerry Hewitt, left, and Rob Yarrall with Cheryl and
Christmas has come early for the
National Aquarium of New Zealand, as
they welcome two juvenile female
alligators to their family. On a two-year
loan from Butterfly Creek in Auckland,
the toothy pair, known as Fiona and
Cheryl, are almost six years old and one
Collected from Auckland by aquarium
staff and brought to Napier by road,
aquarium manager Rob Yarrall says the
pair travelled very well.
When we arrived at Butterfly Creek,
the alligators were hanging out' in their
normal enclosure,'' he says.
We took with us two specialist-made
containers for them to travel in, to ensure
they were well protected and comfortable
during their journey and, apart from a
couple of stops to check on them along the
way, we travelled without a hitch.
They seem pleased to be in their new
home and are settling in well.''
Fiona and Cheryl will share a home
with terrapins on the first floor of the
aquarium, in a Florida Everglades-
themed enclosure, which the aquarium
team has built to mirror their natural
To understand what the Everglades
are like, imagine a tropical swamp, trees
growing out of the water and lots of lush
vegetation,'' Mr Yarrall says.
Napier City Council's tourism services
marketing manager Rebecca Ainsworth
said the timing of the arrival of the
alligators, just before the peak summer
period, could not be better and would be
a welcome addition to the aquarium.
We already have so many creatures
and animals from around the world to
show our visitors, so the alligators will
broaden that mix even further,'' she said.
Visitors seem to love anything with
sharp teeth that have that mystery or
dangerous element about them, so I'm
sure they will be a popular attraction.''

New jobs for bay boys
Both Hawke's Bay MPs have greater
responsibilities in the new Cabinet,
announced on Monday.
Tukituki MP Craig Foss said his new
positions within Cabinet would not take
him away from his constituents.
Named Minister of Commerce, Broad-
casting, Associate Minister for ACC and
Associate Minister of Education, Mr Foss
said although he would now spend more
time in Wellington, he would still have
time to properly represent the people.
While the next three years will be
very busy, I'm looking forward to working
in new areas and building on the work I
have done already,'' he said.
Napier MP Chris Tremain, outside
Cabinet, had been named as Minister for
Civil Defence, Minister of Consumer
Affairs, Associate Minister of Tourism
and Associate Minister of Education.
Mr Tremain said he was really
stoked'' with the opportunities and while
his duties would take a little more of his
time than his previous post as senior
whip, he would still work hard to find a
balance between his work, family and
