ILLINOIS MEDICAL DISTRICT — Over the weekend, UIC hosted reptiles and amphibians from around the world at the 21st annual Reptile Fest from the Chicago Herpetological Society.

Watch the video to meet our favorite guests: a hipster iguana named Lucky Dime, flying snakes, The Frog Lady, and celebri-gator O'Hare, the alligator who made headlines when he was taken on a Blue Line train and left at O'Hare Airport.
