The UKs first reptile zoo. Currently under construction in North Yorkshire. Dedicated to reptile conservation. Home of the world’s largest reptile!
Throwback to this time last year when Big Al, our giant Common Snapping Turtle awoke earlier from his winter hibernation to find that snow was still covering the ground. Believe it or not, Common Snappers are incredibly tough and can even survive under ice. They slow their heart rate down to less than one beat per minute and are able to utilise oxygen in the water, just like a fish!
Daisy, our largest American Alligator could once fit in the palm of a hand. Just four years on and she’s now over two meters long and weighs as much as an adult man!
