The center houses a 5000 square foot indoor exhibit area focusing on reptiles and amphibians as well as birds and invertebrates.

Some of the species housed at the conservation center include a pair of 90 pound African Spur Thigh Tortoises, an anaconda, an 18 foot Reticulated Python (one of the largest snake species in the world), a seven foot long Crocodile Monitor Lizard among other large monitor lizards, a pair of Beaded Lizards (one of two venomous species of lizard), a group of Caiman Lizards, Pancake Tortoises, Red Footed Tortoises, Russian Tortoises, Rhinoceros Iguanas, tarantulas, scorpions, macaws, and many other awesome creatures from all over the globe. We offer great opportunities for school groups, scouting organizations, birthday parties, etc. Scheduled group visits to GLZS will enjoy a 30-45 minute classroom presentation with live animals, many of which you will be able to touch.
