The opportunity to share life with Iguanas, Snakes, Tortoises, Lizards, Frogs, Scorpions, Tarantulas and more.

With such close encounters you'll see the colours, textures and behaviours of each of these wonderful creatures and get more of an understanding of these animals which are often misrepresented.

 

Based in Crawley, we travel across the south East and London areas to bring the animal encounters to you.

With 30+ years in exotic animal care, 15+ years working in FE education and training
