Definitions

Displays
Secure cages and tanks will display a variety of reptiles. Native and exotic species of snakes, as well as various species of lizards and/or turtles will be used. The display also includes educational interpretation. A minimum of one staff person will always be present to answer the public’s questions and maintain the display. More about our displays.
Shows
Approximately one hour in length, the shows are performed in two parts. The first half is an educational presentation about snakes and other reptiles. The second half is hands-on for the participants. Snakes are given to willing audience participants to touch, hold or even wear. Large groups may require additional resources. More about our shows.
