Reptiles Bizarre and Beautiful

Saturday February 16 - Monday February 18

This annual cold-blooded weekend at the Virginia Living Museum explores the bizarre and beautiful aspects of reptiles.

Turtle Cove will be filled with an African Spur Tortoise, Red Footed Tortoise, Snapping Turtles, Chicken Turtles and more. Guest exhibitors include Iguana Rescue, VIIPer, Va. Dept of Game and Inland Fisheries and Va. Herpetological Society. Guest speakers will present on a variety of herpetology topics. See “A Sky Full of Scales” in the Abbitt Planetarium.

Reptiles are perhaps the most misunderstood and most feared creatures on earth, but the VLM wants the public to see their fascinating and attractive aspects as well. 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Monday, noon-5 p.m. Sunday.
