Lizards & Snakes: Alive! is an astounding live collection of gliding, climbing, slithering, side-winding snakes, skinks, lizards, chameleons, and iguanas. These lizards and snakes are squamates, a group of stunningly diverse creatures that are among the most successful vertebrates on Earth, found everywhere from the harsh desert to lush rainforest, high in the treetops and beneath the ground. Using live animals, real and cast fossils, extensive multimedia, hands-on interactives, and an activity area specifically for young visitors, Lizards & Snakes: Alive! explores squamate evolution, mobility and other diverse characteristics. This one-of-a-kind exhibition is a fascinating look into the wild world of squamates that will enthrall, educate, and engage visitors of all ages.
