BEST PLACE TO LAY DOWN YOUR TOWEL
Park near the Tybee Beach Beach and Pavilion (Tybrisa St, Tybee Island, GA 31328) use the bridge in front of the Tybee Island Marine Center turn right and walk towards the rock formation close to the sand dunes.

Behind The Scenes At The New Zoo Atlanta Scaly Slimy Spectacular Amphibian and Reptile Complex


Zoo Atlanta unveiled a new state-of-the-art amphibian and reptile complex featuring more than 70 species on Thursday April 2, 2015. Scaly Slimy Spectacular: The Amphibian and Reptile Experience is an $18 million project housing around 100 individual animals representing more than 70 species from around the world.





This exhibit includes more than 65 animal habitats and some 60,000 gallons of water in its aquatic environments, including a 30-foot naturalistic waterfall and a river designed to replicate Georgia’s own Flint River system. 

Habitats represent some of the world’s most iconic wild places, including a windswept desert, African savanna, Australian billabong, mangrove swamp, Georgia tidal creek, Pacific Northwest stream and many more. The complex’s Georgia eXtremes section houses native species and showcases Georgia’s role as a North American hotspot of biodiversity.

This is a truly special moment for the Zoo Atlanta family. This is a project that has been years in the making,” said Raymond B. King, President and CEO. “It’s incredibly rewarding to finally have the experience open for everyone to enjoy. We think our visitors are going to be floored when they see the complex, not just by what they see inside, but also by just how different Scaly Slimy Spectacular is from anything else in the Zoo, or anything else in the city, for that matter.”



As part of the media opening week a group of selected families and children had the opportunity to be the first people to ever spend the night at the new amphibian and reptile exhibit.







The private guided tour at the zoo, animal encounters and all the themed game activities was so much fun. Also, exploring the zoo at night with night vision goggles was a huge hit among the kids.


This is one of those things every child should at least experience once in their lifetime.



Zoo Atlanta is open 363 days a year; closed only on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. For additional information on Zoo Atlanta, visit zooatlanta.org or call 404.624.5600
