A Keeper Experience is for 2 people, this can be Adult & Child or two Adults, or just one adult, It is £100 for the session, The session runs for one hour, is only available on Saturdays and runs between 9 am and 10 am Attendees must be on time as the session is run prior to the Zoo opening to the public. Once the session has finished you will be welcome to enjoy the zoo as a visitor throughout the day. On your experience you will be greeted by Louise the owner of the Reptilarium and Terrapin sanctuary and join her as she opens up the zoo ready for the day, you will have approximately 15 minutes to explore each room and will be able to tong feed some of the animals such as our Spiny tailed monitor lizard, Frilled Dragons and Terrapins. Louise will be with you to answer any of your questions about the animals and give you some interesting facts about them. Helping Louise as you go down through the Reptilarium rooms making sure all the animals are ok and have their needs met you may be called on to do a head count or help make sure the right environmental conditions are being provided! Once the hour is up and you have opened the doors to the Reptilarium to welcome the general public Louise will present you with a certificate as a memento of your fun and interesting experience. Please Note - As a responsible zoo these are NOT animal handling experiences, we like all good zoos believe unnecessary handling by inexperienced persons on species and animals not acquainted to regular handling can be detrimental to their well being, we kindly ask that you do not ask to handle any of the animals during an experience as refusal often causes upset in younger visitors who are unable to grasp the ethical constraints.
