May 11: Speckled Kingsnake

Speckled kingsnakes are not picky eaters! These fearless serpents have a reputation for eating other snakes, including venomous ones like rattlesnakes and copperheads.

June 8: Ornate Box Turtles

Join us for a meet n’ greet with Nebraska’s state reptile, the ornate box turtle! Did you know these turtles each have their own unique shell pattern? Be sure to check out their shells in person!

 

July 13: Tiger Salamanders (CANCELLED)

 Did you know that these colorful critters have the ability to regenerate lost body parts? If a tiger salamander loses a limb, it can often regrow it back!

Fox snakes aren’t just masters of the land—they’re also quite the climbers and swimmers! These agile reptiles can slither up trees with surprising ease, using their muscles and scales to grip onto branches.
