Reptile Garden

In the Reptile Garden, between the Art House and the Wildlife Pond, there are Elongated Tortoises and Radiated Tortoises. These exotic animals were either found abandoned or rescued from the illegal pet trade. These individuals cannot be released to the wild and therefore live here safely as educational ambasadors.

These animals do not adapt well to life in captivity in private houses, so we strongly encourage our visitors not to be tempted to buy such animals in pet shops.
