Saltonstall Animal Room

Saltonstall Animal Room

Our animal room features seventeen unique habitats from around the world that represent a diversity snapshot of global ecosystems and their inhabitants. Organized according to amphibians, reptiles and fish, our habitats focus not just on the animals, but also on the environments in which they are found.

Experience a tropical rainforest with a mysterious green tree python and a desert with a curious California kingsnake. Check out the beautiful yet invasive red lionfish suspended within a North Carolina shipwreck, and playful seahorses swimming among Florida mangroves. Be sure not to miss the rest of our amazing animals, especially our poison dart frogs as they jump around their limestone outcrop!

Opening in 2014 will be a new room showcasing New York native fish, reptiles and amphibians!
