Visit National Aquarium, Washington, DC on Reptile and Amphibian Day for a family-friendly day full of activities pertaining to reptiles and amphibians.
Get up close and personal with our reptile and amphibian species, including our rambunctious juvenile alligators and our adorable new baby sea turtle. Learn everything you ever wanted to know about reptiles and amphibians from our leading experts. Special activities include curator talks, animal encounters, bug buffets, and arts and crafts.
Schedule of Events (times are subject to change)
12-4 p.m.: Make-Your-Own Art Ex-Ribbit - Create colorful reptile and amphibian art!
12-4 p.m.: Belly Up to the Bug Buffet - Ever wondered what we feed our reptiles and amphibians? Find out at our bug buffet. May seem gross to you, but to a frog or lizard, it’s fine dining.
2 p.m.: Spotlight Stealers - Join us at our Channel Islands Exhibit at 2 p.m. for our regularly scheduled Saturday shark feeding. We told our sharks that today wasn't about them, but it's hard to argue with a hungry shark!
