Snakes are helpful creatures in nature, feeding on nuisance mice and rats as well as insects that might otherwise bug you. Next time you find a snake in the grass, learn how to ID it and what to do at this upcoming event. We’ll have live local snakes including the dangerous ones – coral snake, copperhead, and moccasin/cottonmouth – in tanks for you to see safely. Talk with a local snake expert and get your questions answered! Head over to the Reptile & Amphibian Building for this event.
This event is included with your paid Zoo admission. This event is free for Zoo Members!
