Daily shows

Programs are offered daily when we are open
to the public.

1pm:  Venom Extraction

Watch our director Jim Harrison as he extracts venom from some of our snakes! Learn about why he extracts and what venom can do to save lives!

(If the extraction does not take place, a reptile talk will happen instead.)

3pm & 5 pm: Reptile Talk

Our tour guides will give a special presentation, bringing out one of our (nonvenomous!) reptile friends and highlighting what makes them so amazing!


Venom extractions are subject to change, even on short notice. Please call the morning ahead to verify if extractions are

still scheduled for that day.
