Creatures and Critters

Slither over this bank holiday weekend and join in the fun at our reptile and amphibian adventure days.

Reptiles have walked the earth for more than 340 million years, even outliving the dinosaurs. Amphibians were the first creatures to venture onto land almost 400 million years ago. However, reptiles and amphibians are facing increasing threats in their natural habitat and are being driven to the edge of extinction. In fact more than 150 amphibian species have become extinct since 1980. A further third of the world’s amphibians are threatened with extinction.

Hop over to the reptile and amphibian house to find out more about the work we are doing for reptiles and amphibians and visit more than 20 species including critically endangered frogs such as golden mantella, mossy frogs and lemur leaf frogs. You can also see frilled lizards, the venomous Mexican beaded lizard, Jamaican boas and yellow-headed day gecko.

There will be fun for all the family including:

  • reptile meet and greet sessions with the zoo keepers
  • face painting
  • crafts
  • touch and feel table and much more.
