Rainforest

Venture into the Rainforest

Walk past trees and waterfalls as you check out Caiman Crocodile, Blue Poison Dart Frogs and Brutus the Alligator Snapping Turtle.

Caiman

  • The Spectacled Caiman is named after the bony ridge in front of their eyes that appears to come together like a pair of spectacles!
  • The Caiman's diet consists of fish, amphibians, other reptiles, water fowl and small mammals.

Poison Dart Frog

  • These frogs are one of the three species that were once used to coat the ends of hunting arrows, leading to the common name "poison dart frogs."
  • In the wild, the frog's skin is covered with glands that secrete poisons capable of paralyzing their prey.

Red-bellied Piranha

  • These piranhas are omnivores and primarily foragers that feed on insects, fish, plants, and organic waste.
  • Red-bellied piranhas tend to travel in schools of 20 or more individuals.
