Reptiles of the World Keeper Talk

Daily Keeper Talk at 1:00PM

While visiting Safari Niagara, come see and learn about reptiles. During our Keeper Talk “Reptiles of the World” you will have an opportunity to learn about reptiles from the zoo keepers responsible for the daily care of these cold blooded animals.

There are more than 8,000 species of reptiles on the planet, and they live on every continent except Antarctica.
