Those who are reptile lovers or simply want to learn more about the fascinating creatures are invited to attend Miami Science Museum’s Reptile Day on Saturday, Nov. 5. Merging two of the Museum’s most popular events, Snake Day and Lizard Day, Reptile Day will include entertaining and interactive activities about many different reptile species. New to the event this year is the Turtle and Tortoise category.

During the event, attendees will have the opportunity to see, touch and experience several different lizard and snake species, while the reptiles’ enthusiastic owners share details about their pets.

The pet reptile competition will give select owners a chance to show off their scaly sidekicks, and compete for People’s Choice Awards such as The Largest, Best of Show, Most Unusual, People’s Pick and Junior Herpetologist.

Guests will also enjoy a reptile trivia contest, live demonstrations, face painting, build-a-snake or lizard activity, snake personality quiz, and a sampling of “Insect Cuisine” prepared by a professional chef.

Reptile Day is sponsored in part by GEICO, Tom Crutchfield, Zoo Med, and United Pet Group, Inc. For more information about sponsorship opportunities, contact Rachael Sablotsky at
