Meet the Newest Member of Our Discovery Zoo Crew: Red-tailed Boa

Join our zoo staff in the Bieser Education Center to meet the newest permanent member of our Discovery Zoo! Our young red-tailed boa will be ready to meet all of our guests, but she also needs YOUR help picking out her new name.

She currently weighs in at about 10 lbs. and is approximately 4 1/2 feet long -- but she could grow to be up to 50 lbs. and 10 feet long!

Learn all about this constrictor, and meet other scaly members of our crew -- and their keepers! -- at this fun afternoon program.

Members and guests can vote in-person or online for up to two weeks after the opening event.

Educational snake programs are included with regular admission; free for members.
