Behind-the-Scenes Tours

Get a behind-the-scenes tour of an AZA accredited zoo and see hundreds of animals not visible to the general public. A zoo expert will be your guide for this 30 minute tour, which includes access to animals that are part of our specialized breeding program, or in other words, Reptiland’s nursery. See tanks of poison dart frog tadpoles, as well as rare gecko and lizard species recently hatched. Learn which animals are part of AZA’s Species Survival Plan and Reptiland’s role in this important conservation effort. Some other species featured off display include (but are not limited to): dwarf crocodiles, juvenile green mambas, frilled lizards, chameleons, tarantulas, scorpions, and a giant Indian fruit bat. The tour also features our extensive venomous snake collection, and you may even get to see a cobra in the hooded posture. Experience what only zoo staff get to see with this one of a kind tour!
