Amazing Reptiles: Real and Robotic
On display through May 4, 2008
What came first, the chicken or the egg? For reptiles this is a very important question! It was the egg that allowed reptiles to develop into the first true vertebrate land animals. Explore this and many other reptilian topics in this new exhibit that allows you to come face-to-face with an oversized Western Diamondback Rattlesnake, see a robotic skull of an Indian Cobra, sneak up on an 18-foot Nile crocodile and watch out for the 15-foot alligator snapping turtle. Touch real reptiles during our Animal Encounter programs and learn about the characteristics that make reptiles, reptiles.
