Museum hosts Reptile Day on Saturday

POSTED: July 18, 2013 1:30 a.m.

Visitors to Fernbank Museum’s annual Reptile Day will have a close personal view of dozens of lizards, snakes, turtles and even a few amphibians from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, July 20.

A variety of reptiles — exotic and native to Georgia — will be on display in the Museum’s Great Hall. Some animals also will be available for visitors to touch. Visitors are encouraged to ask questions and learn more about the importance of these exceptional animals.

Fernbank educators will feature some of the cool critters from the museum’s live animal collection in special Remarkable Reptile presentations at select times.

Not everything involves a live animal, though. For the skittish and stylish, visitors can enjoy making faux snakes during Fernbank’s snake bracelet craft activity.

Reptile Day is included with Museum admission, which is free for members, $17.50 for adults, $16.50 for students and seniors, $15.50 for children ages 3-12, and free for children ages 2 and under.

Fernbank Museum of Natural History is at 767 Clifton Road in Atlanta. For more information and tickets, visit fernbankmuseum.org or call 404-929-6300.
