Lizards & Snakes

This is a closed, past exhibit; it is not available for viewing.

Lizards & Snakes showcased live animals and their remarkable adaptations, including projectile tongues, deadly venom, amazing camouflage, and sometimes surprising modes of locomotion.  Representing 26 species occurring in countries such as Australia, Cuba, Egypt, Guatemala, Kenya, Madagascar, Mexico, Sudan, and the United States, the specimens ranged from a four-inch Tropical Girdled Lizard to a fourteen-foot Burmese Python and were shown in re-created habitats complete with ponds, tree limbs, rock ledges, and live plants.
