Cool Zoo, an interactive and educational wildlife travel exhibit, featuring hands-on encounters with exotic animals, will be headlining this weekend’s Repticon exhibition in Ladson. The event will take place on August 21st and August 22nd at the Exchange Park Cultural Arts Building in Freedom Hall.
Cool Zoo will present the Charleston community with one-of-a-kind, animal experiences for pet lovers and exotic hobbyists alike. Headlining the exhibit is Cool Zoo’s signature attraction, The Hermit Crab Adoption Center by Mister Crabs. The educational experience is free for all Repticon attendees and includes the opportunity to observe and touch “rare and famous hermit crabs” from around the globe. Cool Zoo is proud to offer the world’s largest hermit crab sanctuary and through their efforts have rescued thousands of crabs from death. Guests will have the option to adopt rescued hermit crabs as well as purchase travel companion kits, shells, hermit crab food and accessories.
“It’s an honor to provide the Charleston community with the opportunity to receive a hands-on education on these beautiful creatures,” said Jim DeBerry, CEO of Cool Zoo. “We hope that through our efforts, people will have a newfound appreciation for these amazing animals.”
