CROCtoberfest at Wildlife Discovery Center

CROCtoberfest will now be a month-long celebration of our ancient reptiles, the crocodilians. We will be exploring a new group of crocodilians on three Sundays in October. Our events will feature special feeding demonstrations and offer opportunities to meet our resident crocodilians up close – in a safe environment.

October 6: The American Alligator
October 20: The Morelet's & The Philippine Crocodile
October 27: The Orinoco Crocodile
