Sacramento Zoo Reptiles & More

Reptiles are the only animals with the following combination of traits:

  • Skin covered with a sheet of scales
  • Contol body temperature through external means
  • Young that look like miniature adults (most hatched from eggs, but some born live)

Due to exhibit maintenance, weather conditions and animal care requirements, some of the animals may not be viewable. If you are interested in a particular species, please call 916-808-5888 or email the Member & Visitor Services Office to find out if you will be able to see those animals during your visit.
