Lubbock’s most popular annual animal event is back again this June.  No where else in town can you see elephants, alligators, crocodiles, camels, a kangaroo, giant tortoises, big snakes, and tons of other cool animals as the Science Spectrum literally turns into a Zoo for four days.  Awesome and amazing animal acts, as well as the extremely popular petting zoo, pony and camel rides, and live dog shows, along with many other animals on display, continue to make this event a hit for the whole family!

Two exciting shows will be featured at this year’s CritterFest. Close Encounters of the Exotic Kind and Crocodile Encounters will headline the always popular animal entertainment.

Close Encounters of the Exotic Kind is an educational live tiger and lion show that will astound audiences with the beauty and intelligence of these amazing animals.

Crocodile Encounters is an educational reptile show that will introduce you to live American alligators and Nile crocodiles in order to educate the public about conserving these often misunderstood animals.
