Photos: Lizards & Snakes at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science
There's a table in the exhibit where you can touch snakeskin, as well as information and displays on how some of these animals become unfortunate fashion accessories.
This little guy is a basilisk, colloquially known as a "Jesus lizard" for its ability to walk on water. (And not nearly as scary as the Harry Potter version of a basilisk!)
There's also a green screen where you can get your picture taken with a snake, live performances and, as mentioned, a life-sized anaconda that you can attempt to lift. Seriously -- attempt. That thing is heavy.
There are a lot more special features and interesting creatures in the exhibit (including this guy, whose tongue is blue -- maybe he'll show it to you!); be sure to stop by before it closes in July. Remember, it's free with museum admission!
