El Paso Zoo to Celebrate Reptiles at Reptilia Event this Weekend

The El Paso Zoo will celebrate all things scaly, slimy, and slithery with the annual Reptilia event. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate wildlife and enjoy time with friends and family.

Guests will be able to get up close and personal with some of the Zoo’s snakes and lizards. Even the Zoo’s non-reptile animals will be celebrating with reptile-themed piñatas and other animal enrichments.

These enrichments provide the animals opportunities to exhibit their natural behaviors like climbing, digging, and even playing. They are fun to watch and are a reminder of one of the Zoo’s goals—to act and communicate with the purpose of inspiring people to value wild animals, taking responsibility for their safeguarding and action for their stability.

The Zoo will also celebrate reptiles of the past by screening all four Jurassic Park films and providing guests with an opportunity to look at some fossils. There will be a large inflatable obstacle course and live music from 7thAve Band.

WHO:          The El Paso Zoo |  4001 E. Paisano Drive

WHAT:         The El Paso Zoo will have reptile encounters, photo opportunities, candy giveaways, and animal enrichments for Reptilia. They will also be showing all four Jurassic Park films throughout the weekend.

WHEN:         10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 3, and Sunday, June 4
