New Animals
Help Us Choose a Name for
Our New Albino Rattlesnake!
Albino Rattlesnake
Our new rattlesnake doesn’t currently have a name – and we want you to
have a say! Through April 30, when you purchase one of our stuffed snakes
for the Gift Shop you can submit your entry for her new name. Your submission could permanently identify one of our most popular new residents!

The winner will be randomly selected and announced on Community Appreciation Day (Free Day), April 30. If your entry is selected, you will
get a permanent plaque on the front of her enclosure stating that her name
was chosen by you. We can’t wait to see what gets chosen!
