In a Nutshell

More than 150 species of reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates thrive in multispecies habitats with historical and scientific facts

The Fine Print

Promotional value expires Jan 1, 2014. Amount paid never expires. Limit 1 per person, may buy 4 additional as gifts. Valid only for option purchased. Reservation is required for group events; subject to availability. Off-season unlimited pass expires 5/31/13. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

Cold-blooded animals' body temperatures rely on external forces, such as the hot rays of the sun, icy gusts of wind, or the cool blast of a favorite chewing gum. Ogle nature's thermometers with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $12 for one off-season pass for unlimited visits for two (until May 31), including a 10% discount on items purchased at the gift shop (a $24 value)
  • $39 for $100 toward an Outreach Program, such as a group event, school program, or birthday party

This Groupon’s second option covers Outreach Programs that bring the zoo experience to you. Zookeepers usher select animals to educational events, such as library presentations, festival appearances, and lessons for homeschool groups ($149–$199/hour; $599+/full day). Alternatively, reptile lovers can opt to have an animal show at their birthday party.

Cold Blooded Encounters Science Center

Cold Blooded Encounters fills guests' days with a variety of science-related exhibits, interactive presentations, and games. The newly-opened Science Center schools visitors on topics from fossils and gemstones to fun kitchen chemistry and turtle races. At the Reptile Zoo meanwhile, an affable red-footed tortoise named Confucius and a gentle black rat snake named Oreo greet visitors. Secluded and multispecies habitats house more than 150 species of amphibians, fish, reptiles, and invertebrates, including fire salamanders, jewel cichlids, Kenyan sand boas, and whip scorpions.

Annual memberships grant gift-shop discounts, guest passes, and a family photo posed with an animal. Cold Blooded Encounters also reaches out to school groups from preschools to colleges with effusive educational programs and sends ambassadors to birthday parties, where children can help feed turtles or pose for photos with 8-foot snakes.
