School Reptile Incursion

What would happen if you actually smiled at a crocodile?
Book our reptile incursion and learn about the 4 major groups of reptiles, crocodiles, snakes, lizards, and turtles! In this 1 hour show, we will get the students feeling and holding our Aussie reptile friends as they learn about topics such as life cycles, food chains, adaptations, basic needs and much more. Our programs can be presented as an introduction to reptiles, or we can align our program with your learning outcomes.

Some of Australia’s most unique reptiles call our zoo home and make appearances in our reptile incursions, including Parker, the frilled neck lizard that was found abandon in a Melbourne park, Ollie the olive python, the 2nd largest snake in the country and marshmallow, the eastern long neck turtle, who was regrettably named by a group of preschool students.

Incursions that give back

In 2019 we have set out on our mission to Mars! By 2027 we hope to plant 10,000 trees in schools all over Victoria and we will achieve this goal by gifting a free small tree or grass for each session booked. When you book your reptile incursion you will not only connect the students with animals, you will connect reptiles with shade and shelter. Remember, reptiles are ectothermic and can overheat just like us so instead of giving lizards and snakes cocktail umbrellas to cool off, we are creating habitat to help them survive the harsh Australian climate.

Help us on our mission to plant 10,000 trees by 2027.

The combination of your beautiful animals with such a wonderful presenter that Abby was just made it brilliant. She really engaged them with target information on adaptations.
