Corn Snakes


Salem and Knox are brothers. They hatched in August 2014 and get along well together (other than at mealtime when each gets a little space). Their favorite snacks are mice and they enjoy exploring new smells and burying themselves under the mulch and soil in their house. Both of them are pretty calm and easygoing when it comes to handling—although, since they look alike, we hear they like to trick new keepers by impersonating each other!


 


Red Footed Tortoise


These 16-year-old brothers, Bolivar and Rivera, are happiest going on long walks in the sunshine, particularly in one of Woodland Park Zoo’s meadows!


 


Boa Constrictor


Anahi is a gentle giant that is 11-years-old and weighs over 25 lbs! Keepers and guests alike love when she attends programs.


 


Bearded Dragon


Freckles is our female bearded dragon. The “beard” is actually a throat pouch covered with long scales. Both males and females communicate by bobbing heads, waving arms and puffing their beards out.


 


African Fat-Tailed Gecko


Cimbia likes having a chubby tail—the fat she stores there gives her extra energy if food gets scarce. We keep this mellow lizard well-fed with crickets and other insects, so she shouldn’t need to draw on her tail reserves any time soon.


 


Leopard Gecko


You may notice something missing on our leopard gecko: Spots! Both of our leopard geckos are leucistic, meaning they have a genetic mutation causing less pigment (coloration) in their skin than others of their species—so Taj and Yar are spotless! They are both very calm geckos, and they love to eat bugs and worms!


 


Blue Tongued Skink


Blue and Henry use their bright blue tongues to grab tasty bugs and fruits. These lizards can also use their tongues in defensive displays. They puff up, flash their tongues, and hiss!


 


Spiny-Tailed Monitor Lizard


Uluru is our female monitor lizard. She is laid-back and loves to nap. Digeridoo, our male, is full of energy and very inquisitive. These Australian reptiles are smaller cousins of the Komodo dragon.

INSECTS

 



Madagascar Hissing Cockroach


At 3 inches long, these are one of the largest roaches in the world! They live in rotting logs on the island of Madagascar—not in the shadows under the kitchen sink. Calm and wingless, these insects are nature’s recyclers.


 


Brazilian Black Tarantula


Our Brazilian black tarantula is a velvety beauty. Females grow to about 7 inches across, making it easy to see all the details of these gentle, fuzzy spiders.


 


Jungle Nymphs


The giant thorny phasmid, also known as a jungle nymph, is native to Asian tropical rainforests. If you think it looks like a leaf, you’re not wrong. Phasmids use camouflage in the lush foliage around them to blend in and avoid predators. They are harmless to humans and feed entirely on plant material.
