Savage Gardens and Nature's Ninjas at RBG

Walking sticks, Tiger Salamanders, Ornamental Tarantulas, Razorback Musk Turtles, Poison Dart Frogs and an assortment of meat eating plants; if this sounds like something from an exotic tropical adventure you'd probably be right. However, for a limited time until April 13th, the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington brings the adventure to you. With two exciting exhibits called Savage Gardens & Nature's Ninjas, you can experience bizarre & larger than life carnivorous plants as well as some of the planets most interesting animals. snapd Hamilton was invited to a VIP sneak peak to all the cool exhibits which features some amazing hands on activities, live demonstrations, unique animals, meat eating plants, a 10 foot tall Tropical Pitcher Plant & so much more. It's truly a captivating experience that you just have to go and check out yourself. For more information and a full listing of all the activities and demonstrations, visit their website at
