Butterfly Conservatory presents thrilling new exhibit: VENOM

(News Release)

Hairy Tarantula
Niagara Falls, ON - The Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory is pleased to present “Venom”, a new family friendly educational exhibit designed for the kid in us all. The travelling show, which was created by Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo, of Ottawa, will run February 9 to May 12.

Little Ray's popular interpreter, Kevin Dungey, AKA “Caiman Kevin”, will return to the Butterfly Conservatory, and in his unique and captivating style lead daily (except Wednesdays) educational programs and interactive sessions for the public.  Visitors may remember Kevin from his participation in last season’s Animals of the Rainforest show, held at NPC’s Butterfly Conservatory.

Tarantula
New this year, the Venom exhibit will include tarantulas, scorpions, highly poisonous toads, rattlesnakes, vipers and one of only two king cobras on display in Canada.

The fully accessible Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory is located at 2565 Niagara Parkway, on the grounds of the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens and School of Horticulture. The new exhibit is included with regular paid admission. For detailed information on the Conservatory, its hours of operation, admission and parking rates, as well as NPC’s attraction packages, please visit www.niagaraparks.com.

Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo is one of Canada’s largest sanctuaries for unwanted pet reptiles. None of the animals on display were taken from the wild.

NPC is committed to a vision of Ontario’s Niagara Parks as one that Preserves a rich heritage, Conserves natural wonders, and Inspires people world-wide. Founded in 1885, The Niagara Parks Commission is an Operational Enterprise Agency of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport.
