ABout Deserts

Step inside the Deserts Dome and discover an arid oasis surrounded by beautiful and mysterious creatures — some of the friendlier ones are even free-roaming!

Sunlight fills the space and guests can often see lizards sunning on rocks high overhead close to the windows. The temperature-controlled climate remains above 80 year round, providing a warm environment where our species can thrive.

The hot, dry environment might not be hospitable for some species, but it’s home for these creatures.
