Reptile and Amphibian Appreciation Day
Thanks for making NHM's 5th Annual Reptile and Amphibian Appreciation Day a success!
We hope to see you next year for another RAAD day!
Keep checking back for details.
This year at RAAD there were loads of live reptiles and amphibians, including live animal presentations in the new Nature Lab. Visitors saw specimens from the herpetology and anthropology collections, watched snake-feeding demos, took behind-the-scenes tours, heard guest speakers, and learned all about reptiles and amphibians from local herpetological societies, professional biologists, and more!
Behind-the-scenes tours took visitors on a journey through the Dino Lab, Animal Care space, and Herpetology department (which houses 183,000 specimens in their collection!)
Art activities provided kids fun and engaging ways to learn about reptiles and amphibians.
Animal presentations allowed visitors to get up close to live animals and learn more about them.
Partnering organizations provided tables in the foyer and NHM's Nature Gardens to showcase live animals, talk about their organizations, and answer questions.
Family-friendly lectures were held on stage and included venomous snake feeding demonstrations, Citizen Science, and RAAD discussion.
