Flashlight Safari at Reptiland

Halloween Festivities

October 19, 2018 to October 20, 2018

Clyde Peeling's Reptiland



Join us on October 19 & 20 from 6:00-9:00pm to experience nocturnal nightlife at the zoo!

Many of our animals become active at night. Take a peek at their “secret” after-hours activities with a special safari through our exhibits with only a flashlight to guide you!

See lots of critters in action including mambas, cobras, pythons, and rattlesnakes, along with aquatic turtles, poisonous dart frogs, tree monitors, and crocodilians. Get an up-close look at Madagascar hissing cockroaches, a tarantula, emperor scorpion, and boa constrictor. You can even touch some of these animals!

• Live Shows at 6:00, 7:00, and 8:00 •
Take in a show featuring a great horned owl, Norway rat, scorpion, kinkajou, and rattlesnake! You’ll be amazed by the efficiency of most nocturnal animals. Snakes, for example, are among the most efficient nocturnal predators even though they have poor eyesight. Their excellent sense of smell aids in detecting and tracking prey. Snakes smell with their tongue and some even have heat-sensing organs on either side of their heads to detect the distance and location of prey! Learn all this and more with our nocturnal shows at 6:00, 7:00, and 8:00.

• Torchlit Dinos •
Experience the dinosaur exhibit lit with torches and spotlights! Trek through this prehistoric path to see the impressive Giganotosaurus as well as new dinos like Allosaurus and Deinonychus!

• Halloween Fun •
See the zoo like never before! Enjoy spook-tacular surroundings decked out with creatively carved jack-o-lanterns, festive lighting, and more. Visit the activity tent to strike a pose in our photo booth and get crafty with a special activity!
