Reptile Encounters


Reptile Encounters, our brand new attraction opened in Autumn 2014. It has been a massive hit so far! It has been far more popular than we ever expected. Mind the Croc as you enter in to the jungle of exotic creatures.
Meet Monty the Python, the star of the show and the main exhibit in the center of the attraction. There are many other reptiles on show, including; Corn Snakes, Royal Pythons, Chameleons, Leopard Geckos, Crested Geckos, Bearded Dragons, Agamas, Long Tail Lizards, Horsfield Tortoises and a Blue-Tongue Skink.
