BIRDS OF PREY

NATIONAL REPTILE ZOO (New this year!)
Come face to face with some of the world’s most amazing animals with the National Reptile Zoo Keepers, who believe that the only way to really appreciate some of these magnificent animals is to meet them personally; and they'll give you the chance to do just that! Animals will range from pythons to gecko lizards, tarantulas to scorpions!
Part of the National Reptile Zoo's ethos is to educate the public regarding the conservation and welfare of the animals through animal encounter sessions with resident reptiles, who the zoo refer to as 'Ambassadors for their Species'.
