It’s difficult to know where to begin describing Zoo Atlanta, which houses more than 1,000 animals, representing more than 200 species from around the world.

And with the opening of the award-winning Scaly Slimy Spectacular: The Amphibian and Reptile experience, close encounters of the slithering kind are just a few steps away.
