Join the Animal Encounters team and explore the world of our scaly reptile friends. This hands-on experience is designed to get our younger guests up close and personal with reptiles, not only found in our own back yard, but from as far as the other side of the world! Hear stories of how reptiles have roamed the earth for millions of years and how they have adapted to live alongside us today. See some of our scaly critters up close while you hold a lizard, pat a snake and feed a critically endangered exotic tortoise.
