Here Be Dragons
Here Be Dragons is a traveling exhibit exploring human/dragon cultural connections through hands-on activities and encounters with live reptiles. The exhibit is split into three Dragon “realms” – Medieval, Asian, and Paleontology. Each realm has a colorful and intricately-designed set like a fire-breathing Dragon poking his head out of a castle. Educational signage provides each visitor information on the mythology of Dragons as well as facts on real-life “dragons.” Integrated within each of these realms is a large reptile collection enclosed in themed habitats for up-close viewing. Here Be Dragons is great fun for kids of all ages. The youngest will enjoy the hands-on activities and older children will love learning how the Dragons found in books like the Harry Potter series can be connected with real-life lizards throughout the world. There are approximately 15 large and small lizards in the exhibit representing 10 species.
