Want to get your students out of the classroom and up close & personal with some live animals? 

Our field trips are a great way to do that! 

Field trips at the Phoenix Herpetological Society include a behind-the-scenes look at a reptile sanctuary and its inhabitants.  On the  tour, students will learn about over 1700 reptiles including:

  • Tortoises, like our native Sonoran Desert Tortoise as well as the three largest species of tortoises in the world
  • Lizards of all shapes and sizes
  • Venomous and non-venomous snakes (safely within in their habitats/enclosures of course) such as rattlesnakes, cobras, mambas, ball pythons, etc.
  • 22 species of crocodilians (the second largest collection in the country) with alligators, crocodiles, caimans, and gharials.

PHS Field Trips are very hands-on and interactive; we give students the chance to meet, touch, and interact with as many animals as possible while teaching about adaptations, life histories, and considerations that we must take into account by having them at our sanctuary.

It is definitely a unique experience that students will not forget.

Our field trips have been the spark that ignited a passion for reptiles in many young people and we are proud to offer field trips all year long.
