N.C. Aquarium to display exotic, aquatic animals

Regional exhibitors and aquarium staff will show off scaly and exotic creatures from their collections while debunking myths and sharing facts about these amazing animals. This year’s event includes species from around the world including Burmese pythons, boa constrictors, iguanas, sea turtles and giant tortoises.

“Scales and Tails offers a unique family experience,” said Hap Fatzinger, aquarium curator. “Where else can a child or adult reach out and safely touch a6-foot python or an American alligator and talk with experts about why these animals matter?”

Visitors are encouraged to bring their curiosity and smiles as photo opportunities abound.
