What's Included

Ever wonder how does a snake smell? How do they make their bodies move? Meet and touch our wide variety of live reptile ambassadors and learn these things and more. Get face to face with a Corn Snake, look eye to eye with the majestic Bearded Dragon. Together we will take an up close look at reptilian anatomy as we learn the proper techniques scientists use to examine skeletons, skins, shells, and fossils. Gain insight into the fascinating adaptations that snakes, lizards, turtles, and tortoises use to for survival. Hike and search for wild reptiles or signs that they leave behind in the park.
