What did you get up to?
When we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff members who showed us over to the reptiles, to meet and greet. We were able to hold a few of the Gecko’s which my daughter loved and found hilarious as one particular Gecko climbed up her arms, shoulders and then proceeded to perch itself on to her head.
My daughter then got to hold a rather scary, scaly snake, who coiled themselves round her wrist like a bracelet. Needless to say she actually found this rather cute and soon its reputation of being a cold blooded killer was quickly demolished.
Next up was the main event.. Swimming with the crocodiles and alligators.
After a quick change into our swimwear we were met at the pool by an experienced reptile trainer who gave us a briefing of how to hold the crocodiles and what to do in the event of one of them being on the lively side, although we were assured this would not be the case.
In the pool we were joined by Smee the Crocodile, Gidget and Tinkerbell the Aligators… Yes they are all named after Peter Pan characters which I found rather sweet. We got to hold them all in the pool and watch them swim past us quite contently.
After a quick change we went on to see the venomous snakes (who we were not allowed to hold) and some of the more ferocious Crocodiles who we were not allowed to swim with called Wendy, Tick Tock and Ali G and it was quite evident the reason behind this was the sheer size of them, you would not want to be swimming alongside them any time soon!!
What did you enjoy the most?
Being in the pool with the crocs was our favourite part!
Allow extra time for the visit as there are plenty of other fascinating reptiles to see
