Meet some of our animal ambassadors:

Darwin is a 4-foot lizard that is potty-trained and very curious about the world. He is almost 5 years old.
White Throat monitor lizards are found in Southern Africa.
Petri & Sherbert: the White's Tree Frogs

Frida: the Kenyan Sand Boa
Sandboas are tiny snakes, adults reaching only 20 inches long.
Silver: the Legless Lizard
Believe it or not, this is a lizard, not a snake. They have adapted to live burrow, which is why they lack limbs. Watch our video about legless lizards here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WY2-ErDyMQ&t=18s
Olive: the Giant Gecko
The New Caledonian Giant Gecko is the largest gecko in the world.
Curly: the California Toad

Jenny is a snake that incubates and takes care of her eggs.
Emily: the Eastern Kingsnake
In the wild, kingsnakes eat other snakes including rattlesnakes. They are immune to rattlesnake venom.
Sherman: the Crested Gecko
Crested geckos do not have eyelids, so they lick their eyeballs clean.
