TROPICAL DISCOVERY ENCOUNTER

SEE WHAT CRAWLS, SLITHERS AND HOPS BENEATH THE JUNGLE CANOPY

45 minutes 

For lovers of reptiles, frogs and fish! Take a one of a kind look into Tropical Discovery, home to all things slithery, slimy and scaly. You'll be transported into an exotic rainforest habitat that is home to more than 300 species and visit two different behind the scenes areas; outside the Komodo dragon exhibit for a face to face visit with one of the large lizards, and a second area that is the keeper's choice! It may be a bird's eye look into our 16,000 Pacific Reek habitat or meeting a frog thought to be extinct in the wild just to name a few. Each experience is different, so an adventurous attitude is recommended! 

Your Encounter Also Includes:

  • One digital group photo
