The world’s most unique creatures are in the house on Currituck property. Visitors to the OBX Lizard Land appreciate all things creepy and crawly. The serpentarium contains both reptiles and amphibians native to local areas and around the world. Families who dare to venture in find themselves meandering through a vivid collection.
OBX Lizard Lane was “created to educate the public about the beautiful creates from around the world to in our own backyards.” Working off of this mission, a dedicated hands on staff is ready and eager to impart their knowledge on each animal inside the building. Their passion comes true as they provide demonstrations and answer questions as they are posed.
