All creatures scaly, slithery and slippery will return to the Australian National Botanic Gardens these school holidays for the amazing Snakes Alive! exhibition.
Taking place between January 14-20 at the Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG), Snakes Alive! is presented by the ANBG in partnership with the ACT Herpetological Association.
Come along for live displays, feeding and handling of snakes, lizards, frogs, turtles and crocodiles. This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your family to learn about a variety of Australian reptiles and amphibians, many of which are threatened, endangered and very rarely seen in the wild or captivity.
Snakes Alive! is open from 10.00 am – 4.00 pm inside the Crosbie Morrison Building, with feeding times taking place at 11.00 am, 1.00 pm and 2.00 pm daily. Tickets cost $6 for adults, $5 concession, and $4 children. You can buy your tickets at the exhibition or online here. Children can also enter a colouring-in competition to win one of three family passes to Snakes Alive! Download your favourite picture here and drop your completed entry off at the ANBG's Visitor Centre by 10 January 2019. Winners will be notified on 12 January.
Funds raised through Snakes Alive! will help the ACT Herpetological Association support regional conservation issues such as the northern and southern corroboree frog breeding programs and other projects furthering reptile and amphibian protection and recovery, education, training, and research projects.
