Reptile Encounters

Reptiles at BCA Zoo:

Come and meet our reptiles and mini beasts and find out why our crawlies aren’t at all creepy. After taking a guided tour around the zoo to meet our zoo animals you will get the chance to meet and feed some of our more unusual residents including animals like our incredible Death Head Cockroaches, the not so scary Rosie our Tarantula, all kinds of weird and wonderful lizards and even one of our curious snakes.

This encounter is suitable for 6 years +.

Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. If no adults are taking part in the encounter one free adult spectator will be admitted per booking.

This encounter will last approximately 90 minutes.

You are welcome to bring cameras with you to take photos however BCA accepts no liability for damage to goods.

We recommend ensuring you are up to date with your tetanus vaccinations before taking part in an animal encounter. It is your responsibility to check you are happy with the vaccination status of anyone in your party.
