Reptiles Bizarre and Beautiful

Saturday February 15 - Monday February 17

This annual cold-blooded weekend explores the bizarre and beautiful aspects of reptiles, both exotic species from around the world and those native to Virginia. Join herpetology experts at the Virginia Living Museum's most popular 3-day event! Exhibitors include Iguana Rescue, Virginia Dept. of Game and Inland Fisheries, the Virginia Herpetological Society, Wildlife Response Inc., and the Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Team. Also on hand will be a selection of reptiles from Clyde Peeling's Reptiland. Turtle Cove will be filled with a variety of tortoise and turtles large and small. On display will be Day Geckos, Waxy Monkey Tree Frogs and a Western Diamondback Rattlesnake and so much more! Test your reptile knowledge with a game-show style planetarium presentation all about our scaly friends. We'll also discover where reptiles can be found in the night skies in the planetarium show "A Sky Full of Scales." Hours are Saturday and Monday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. All activities and exhibits are included in museum admission, except the planetarium programs which are an additional $4.
