Leapin' Lizards, Amphibians Have a New Home at LA Zoo! Built with $14.1 million approved by voters in Proposition CC , the LA Zoo will open its Living Amphibian Invertebrate Reptile exhibit tomorrow. The LAIR exhibit includes some of the creepiest, deadliest creatures the world has to offer. Ian Recchio is LAIR curator along with six full-time herpetology keepers.
