Spiders, snakes, alligators, oh my!

Albino PythonI had my first opportunity to pet a six-foot alligator and an albino python. Although touching snakes may not be my favorite thing to do, it was definitely fascinating for my kids and their friends during a recent trip to Regal Reptiles.

There are more snakes, lizards, turtles, and spiders than I have ever seen under one roof. This warehouse space, near the Providence Public Safety Complex, has ponds and aquariums filled with all kinds of amphibians and invertebrates from around the globe, including a 6,000-gallon alligator and caiman pond. Learn fun facts and watch the alligators feed during special weekend shows.

If you have a birthday party there, the birthday kid even gets to sit on an alligator!
