#ReptileTuesday’ers, we give you the Mojave rattlensnake.

Often mistaken for the Western diamondback, because of their similar appearance, the Mojave rattlesnake has the most potent venom of any rattlesnake in North America.

Not to worry, though. Unless provoked or stepped upon, this rattlesnake, like any, will mind its own. The chances of you getting struck by lighting are actually much...

We’re coming into 2017 hot! Thanks to ALL of you...

The year 2016 was the highest-attended year in the Zoo’s history with 2,046,171 visitors. It was the first time we broke the two-million threshold. And, to top it all off, we set eight monthly attendance records in a row.

Attendance at Wildlife Safari Park was also at its highest since 2000 with 144,239 visitors. Woo hoo!
Some of us only got half-dressed this morning.

These are our pajama cardinalfish at 58 days old. As they grow, their bodies will become less transparent and develop more solid color patterns. So, if you use your imagination, it’ll actually appear as though adult pajama cardinalfish are wearing spotted pajamas. Kids!

Fun Fact: Pajama cardinalfish are paternal mouthbrooders, meaning the males...

The scales featured in this week’s #ReptileTuesday highlight belong to the Johnston’s crocodile or Australian freshwater crocodile.

One way to identify crocodiles is by the shape of their snout. Unlike alligators, who have wider, U-shaped snouts, crocodiles have more pointed, V-shaped snouts.

True story: Johnston’s crocodiles can gallop. You can also find them in our Kingdoms of the Night...

You might find yourself asking the animal in this week's #ReptileTuesday spotlight, "Why the long face?"

This week's #ReptileTuesday species highlight was none other than the many-horned adder.

Not quite a rattlesnake, although venomous like one, the many-horned adder hails from the Namibian Desert in Africa and is named for the distinct tufts of horn-like scales above each eye.

This small and solitary snake will bury itself in the sand for camouflage against predators and to catch prey. And,...

Someone we just simply cannot stop celebrating, and probably never will: Dr. “Doc” Lee G. Simmons. This year marked his 50th anniversary at the Zoo. To honor him, we carried out a 50-day, community-wide celebration, which started on October 13 and ended December 1, the day he was hired at the Zoo.

Throughout the 50 days, we highlighted some of Doc’s most...
