ATLANTA -- After nearly two years of construction, Zoo Atlanta's new reptile and amphibian exhibit will soon welcome its first visitors.
Scaly Slimy Spectacular: The Amphibian and Reptile Experience replaces the zoo's old World of Reptiles Building. The $18 million exhibit houses about 100 animals representing more than 70 species found around the world.
Scaly Slimy Spectacular's animal identification signs are all interactive, featuring facts and videos about the exhibit's creatures. The experience also has game kiosks that allow visitors to answer questions, earn cards and even make their own animals. The game will soon be available on the zoo's mobile app.
The new reptile and amphibian center will open to the public on Thursday, Apr. 2. For more information, visit ssspectacular.zooatlanta.org.
