A live exhibition showcasing a variety of Australian reptiles and amphibians, many of which are threatened, endangered and very rarely seen in the wild or captivity. Special focus this year on Pythons: best practice care and husbandry.
The exhibition includes species local to the ACT and Southern Tablelands region, such as the highly endangered Northern Corroboree Frog (Pseudophryne** corroboree) and threatened species such as the Grassland Earless Dragon (Tympanocryptis pinguicolla) and Striped Legless Lizard (Delma impar).
Presented by the ACT Herpetological Association (ACTHA) in partnership with the Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG).
Members of the public receive an exceptional educational experience with the opportunity to learn about reptiles and amphibians in a hands-on way from dedicated ACT Herpetological Association volunteers.
Funds raised through Snakes Alive! give ACTHA the opportunity to make donations to support regional conservation issues such as the Northern and Southern Corroboree Frog breeding programs and projects aimed at furthering reptile and amphibian protection and recovery, education, training, and research projects.
