This annual cold-blooded weekend explores the bizarre and beautiful aspects of reptiles. See exotic reptiles from around the world and reptiles native to Virginia. Reptiles will be on exhibit and also shown in live animal programs. Reptiles are perhaps the most misunderstood and most feared creatures on earth, but the Virginia Living Museum wants the public to see their fascinating and attractive aspects as well as educating them about responsible pet ownership. Guest exhibitors include Reptile Education of Virginia (REV), Sandy Bottom Nature Park, Virginia Herpetological Society, Virginia Stranding Team and Wildlife Response, Inc. Learn about the museum’s citizen science projects such as FrogWatch and Turtle Census. See the differences between venomous and nonvenomous reptiles. Enjoy reptile-related crafts. Guest speaker Kory Steele, past president of the Virginia Herpetological Society, will present “Frog Calls of Virginia,” on Sunday, Feb. 14 at 3pm. Book a special Reptile Weekend Behind-the-Scenes tour at 3pm on Saturday, Sunday and Monday (additional fee). Enjoy special planetarium programs for an additional fee, including "A Sky Full of Scales."
