Buffalo Zoo’s remodeled reptile and amphibian house will be open to public Friday

Local News

The Buffalo Zoo’s remodeled reptile and amphibian house will reopen this week for the first time in over a year.

It was renamed the Donna M. Fernandes Amphibian and Reptile Center, as a tribute to the zoo’s former longtime president and CEO.

The exhibit has gone through a top-to-bottom renovation at a cost of over $1 million dollars providing habitat for the reptiles and amphibians. 

The old reptile house was closed for renovation, last year, due to deteriorating conditions.

Media members got a preview of the new exhibit today, and zoo officials say everything you see in there will be state-of-the-art. 

Tomorrow local government officials, civic leaders, and zoo supporters will gather for the ribbon-cutting and dedication. The exhibit opens to the public Friday.
