The Lair Opens at LA Zoo

Jim Stafford may not like spiders and snakes, but we do! The LA Zoo has just opened a new exhibit the LAIR (Living Amphibians, Invertebrates, and Reptiles). The Beat was there for the ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday. Can I just say how much I love Tom LaBonge? He is like a cross between a big, friendly puppy and your drunk uncle at Christmas. He grabbed a couple of kids out of the audience and let them have the honor of reading the city’s commemoration, and pose for the ribbon cutting. What an amazing guy!

“The unique collection in the LAIR comprises some of the rarest species among North American zoos. Over 60 species of amphibians, invertebrates, and reptiles are represented in this assortment of living jewels.”
