|Scales & Tails|
Get your hands on the chilling side of nature with some creatures that are cold-blooded and seriously cool with Mystic Aquarium's reptile encounter program, Scales & Tails. Feel the spiny scales of a bearded dragon or the smoothness of a ball python or touch the slick skin of an American alligator.
Participants can chat with an educator, touch a reptile*, hear fun facts and get their photo taken. Check us out beside the alligator exhibit in the EXPLORATION: WILD exhibit. Scales & Tails is included with Mystic Aquarium admission and membership.
*Consistent with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations, children age 5 and under, pregnant women and immunocompromised individuals should not touch reptiles. All people engaging in reptile touch programs should wash/disinfect hands following the contact.
