Join our veterinary staff at the Museum’s Window on Animal Health as they perform a check-up and wellness exam on one of their many exciting patients. While practicing “snake medicine” and providing health care exams to reptiles may seem unusual or unexpected to most, these are typical procedures for Dr. Dan, the Museum’s Veterinarian. The Museum maintains thousands of live animals including birds, small mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish and even invertebrates for educational programs and exhibits. Whether they fly, crawl, swim, slither or hop, the veterinary staff regularly performs wellness exams as part of a preventative medicine program to keep all the Museum animals healthy. Join us for a front-row seat view of exotic animal veterinary medical procedures and post your best questions in chat.
