It’s cheaper to go to the zoo, but only for February

NORFOLK — It might be cold outside, but it’s warm in the Virginia Zoo’s newest exhibit, the World of Reptiles and Friends.

As an extra incentive to visit the zoo’s hundreds of animals, the zoo is offering half-off regular admission for the month of February, according to a news release from the zoo.

The World of Reptiles exhibit, which opened in June 2018, offers visitors a chance to get up close and personal with many exotic reptiles and amphibians in an indoor and heated environment.

Visitors can also come face to face with Siamese crocodiles, visit the newborn frilled dragons in the Reptile Nursery or visit the Frog Lab where they can see how tadpoles become frogs.

The Virginia Zoo is home to more than 500 animals representing more than 100 different species. Founded in 1901, the zoo resides on 53 acres in the Lafayette area, and is an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

On Saturdays at 11:30 am, the Reptile Keepers host a program known as Keeper Chat at the Siamese crocodile exhibit.

The half-off admission offer is valid on regular zoo admission only and is not valid on events or education programs.

Tickets may be purchased online or at the zoo’s ticket booth. See the zoo’s website for details or call 757-441-2374 for more information.
