San Diego, California - Reptile Walk, the new reptile and amphibian exhibit area at the San Diego Zoo, offers guests a new way to see rare frogs, turtles, snakes and crocodiles. The new habitats allow guests to meander between reptile habitats to see unique species just inches away through glass.
The area will now have more species of reptiles and amphibians on exhibit. Guests will be able to see poison frogs, leaf-tailed geckos, mossy frogs, Surinam toads, and Mexican giant tree frogs (Amphibian building); snake-necked turtles, pond turtles, matamata, Malayan giant turtles, and box turtles (Turtle building); and rosy boas, red coachwhip snakes, giant horned lizards, and kingsnakes (California Native Species building) among many others.
A key element of Reptile Walk is an open air pool for Chinese alligators, a critically endangered species from Asia.
