"It’s been exciting to see the pieces fall together to create this new exhibit featuring exceptional and unique amphibians, invertebrates, and reptiles,” said Los Angeles Zoo Curator of Reptiles and Amphibians, Ian Recchio. “Even more exciting is providing the opportunity for thousands of people to view creatures so rare and unusual that most will never have the possibility of seeing them in person."
