A great chance to get up close to some of our amazing creatures!
These sessions are good fun and informative. They include a talk from an Education Officer or Keeper, about 3 or 4 different creatures, and (only if you want to) you may be able to have a touch or hold of these amazing animals!
These sessions may include a royal python, leopard gecko, tortoise, tenrec and some other small animals…possibly some creepy crawlies too!
There are currently three daily handling sessions that take place at 12 PM, 2 PM and 3PM during off peak months and at 4pm from April to September.
Cost of these are £3.00 per person, for a maximum of 20 people at each session. Tickets can only be purchased on the day you visit, from the ticket desk.
So if you fancy handling some of our animals and learning some more about them you can purchase tickets at the ticket desk on arrival. Meet us there at the Discovery and Learning Centre 10 minutes before your scheduled sessions.
* Please note, Handling Sessions are not suitable for children under 3 years old.
