Kids and critters make for a good time when Jeff Musial and his Nickel City Reptiles and Exotics visit the Aquarium of Niagara from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9.
A regular at the Aquarium of Niagara, Musial's collection has grown over the years to include more snakes, reptiles and other cold- and warm-blooded animals. He also has appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."
His menagerie of lizards, snakes, reptiles, amphibians and a few other surprises (maybe a rare fox, otter or porcupine?) are sure to amaze and entertain. Show times are 12:30, 2 and 3:30 p.m. Critter encounters will be held in the second level community room. Regular sea lion demonstrations will be held in the main pool throughout the afternoon. The Aquarium of Niagara's own seahorses, poison dart frogs, octopus, sea lions, seals, penguins and more are also on display.
As always, members are admitted free. The "Reptile Experience" is included in the Aquarium of Niagara's regular admission for non-members. Aquarium of Niagara hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $6.50 for children, and $9 for seniors. Children ages 2 and under are admitted free.
