BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Giant reptiles from Cuba, China and Africa are en route to Brevard Zoo for its annual Cold-Blooded Weekend event.

Reptile expert Bruce Schwedick of the Crocodilian Conservation Center of Florida is bringing five crocodile and alligator species to the Zoo’s Nyami Nyami River Lodge, where he will deliver daily talks on the natural history and conservation status of the animals.

As part of the festivities, the Zoo will introduce two new species to its Caribbean Trail loop: the Jamaican boa and marine toad.

Perennial Cold-Blooded Weekend favorites like stingray feeding, tortoise races and bug-eating contests are scheduled to return.

The event, which is included with general Zoo admission, runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on September 3-5.
