See the Secret Life of Reptiles and Amphibians at London Zoo this weekend

With eight different habitats, the Secret Life of Reptiles and Amphibians is an educational tour for all the family spanning across the globe, taking stops in the South American rainforests, mountain jungles in Asia, and even giant dormant volcanoes in Cameroon. From the snake-eating king cobra to mountain chickens being saved from extinction, head over to London Zoo this weekend to experience some of the planet’s rarest and most unique reptiles and amphibians of all.

Some of the world’s most astonishing diversity is represented here in the new purpose-built space at the Zoo including the world’s largest amphibian and largest aquatic frog.

Explore the elusive habits of these unique creatures as they adapt and blend perfectly into their surrounding environment, hiding in leaves, branches, or just below the surface of the water. Look through the eyes of the scientists who study them as you learn about the many ways reptiles and amphibians survive and reproduce in the wild. Peer through x-rays in the lab, record scientific observations, and even learn how a frog is swabbed to detect diseases.

Follow in the footsteps of conservationists and venture into the field, keeping your eyes peeled and your ears open as you listen for the weird and wonderful sounds that frogs use to communicate. Spot animals among the branches and climb aboard a canoe to get close and with a Philippine crocodile, before learning about the exciting and vital conservation work being performed around the globe to save reptiles and amphibians on the brink of extinction.
