Meet Our Reptiles

We have some awesome Reptiles living here with us at the ASU. On a visit you can see them up close, hear our staff tell you all about them and, in some cases, have a close encounter!


Royal Pythons are native to sub-Saharan Africa and are widely distributed across the continent. Their preferred habitat includes savannah, grasslands, and forested areas.

Corn snakes, sometimes called red rat snakes, are slender, orange or brownish-yellow snakes with a pattern of large, red blotches outlined in black down their backs.

We have a successful breeding pair of Crested Geckos, Zeus and Hera. This Gecko is native to the rainforests of New Caledonia – specifically the Isle of Pines and Grand Terre.
