Lizards & Snakes: Alive!! New exhibit at Balboa Park in San Diego, CA

I don't know if this post belongs here, but I think it does. I live near Balboa Park and I just heard about the new exhibit they are opening tomorrow at the San Diego Natural History Museum!

It's called Lizards and Snakes: Alive! and they are going to have over 60 live specimens, a section of fossilized specimens, and a "hands-on" area for younger kids and parents. They also have a 3D Viewing Experience and one of the films is Dinosaurs: Alive! The exhibit runs from October 16th to April 3rd and admission for adults is $17.

More information can be found on Balboa Park's website here:

It sounds super fun and I'll definitely be going; maybe a few times!

And a few more...

The little guys in jars are part of the museum's Herp Dept collection which "holds over 70,000 catalogued individuals dating back to the 1890s."
