Crosstown Exotics is a reptile and bug show that travels throughout Chicagoland providing hands-on, educational entertainment. Our lineup of prehistoric creatures consists of a mixture of reptiles, amphibians and bugs from African Giant Bullfrogs and Hissing Cockroaches to Green Anacondas and Alligator Snapping Turtles. Audiences get to interact with the animals for an experience unlike anything you’d receive at your local zoo. We take pride in providing memorable encounters with our extensive collection of cold-blooded ambassadors.
For families with kids of all ages.
