From the Niagara Parks blog:
The Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory is pleased to welcome some of the world’s most exotic animals in a new exhibit, ‘Under the Canopy – Animals of the Rainforest’, organized by Ottawa-based Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo.
Staff from Little Ray’s will be in Niagara Falls with the exhibit to lead all educational programs and host daily interactive sessions with the animals.
Rainforest animals that will be on display include: Common Marmoset, Brazilian Short Tailed Opossum, Emerald Tree Boa, Jungle Carpet Python, Red Footed Tortoise, Emperor Scorpions, Cuviers Dwarf Caiman, Panther Chameleon, White’s Tree Frog and the Reticulated Python.
I hope to be able to see this soon…
From the Niagara Falls Review:
The tropical heat of the Butterfly Conservatory played host to some cold-blooded fun over the weekend.
The popular Niagara Parks attraction re-opened to the public Saturday after being closed for renovations.
On the opening day guest list was a menagerie of critters from Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo including a 14-metre-long python, an alligator and a giant snapping turtle.
Kevin Dungey, known as Caiman Kevin to the audience, hosted a series of interactive shows over the holiday weekend aimed at scientific education and animal awareness.
“It’s all hands on and interactive,” he said, while holding an albino reticulated python.
“You just don’t often get a chance to see these animals up close.”
