Scaly & Spectacular!
Amphibians, reptiles and fishes make up 70-percent of all the known living vertebrates (animals with backbones). Though animals are still being discovered, there are at least 20,000 different species of fish, 5,000 species of amphibians and 6,000 species of turtles, snakes, lizards and crocodiles! Sedgwick County Zoo tries to represent this huge diversity with careful selection. view more >
Animals in the Exhibit
Our keepers are very busy caring for the animals. When time allows we will add more journal entries here. We hope the Zookeepers' Journals will be a fun way to learn more about the fascinating animals we have in our care.

All Things Great and Small
Chinese alligators and frogs are some of the things great and small that you'll see. With more than 6,000 frogs, toads, newts, salamanders, and caecilians worldwide, there's a lot to learn. Pick up a book, hop around the internet, or visit Sedgwick County Zoo to educate yourself and your family about amphibians.
