San Diego, California - Up-close encounters with snakes, lizards, tortoises and more await visitors to Discovery Days: Reptilemania presented by Petco. The four-day celebration takes place at the San Diego Zoo Thursday, Sept. 27, through Sunday, Sept. 30, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and is free with Zoo membership or admission.
Reptilemania celebrates all things reptile and amphibian with special shows and interactive opportunities for guests. The reptilian fun includes:
- An opportunity to explore the recently opened Reptile Walk, home to more than 50 species of turtles, tortoises, crocodilians, amphibians, and a surprising collection of creatures native to California.
- A chance to watch the Reptile House inhabitants as they feast on mealworms, earthworms and crickets - just a few of the creepy crawlers on the menu for the cold-blooded creatures' feedings.
- The All Star Reptile and Friends Review show; Reptile Kids' activity booths; keeper talks and photo opportunities with costumed-character mascots Sydney and Matilda Koala
