Reptile Life can attend your school and with our ‘Living Education’ show the children will not only learn about some of the most amazing and biologically diverse animals on the planet they will also get to meet them as well. The ‘Living Education' Workshops are now award winning as well. With acclaimed accreditation from the 2013 London Pet Show giving us some well earned recognition in this field. All our workshops are hands on, educational and fully interactive with the children.
This is your chance to experience the wonder of the animal kingdom with a hugely diverse group of animals including reptiles, invertebrates, amphibians, mammals, birds and marsupials.

Some of our animals
Disa the meercat
Always popular is Disa the meerkat. She is the matriarch of our mob and loves to out and about with lots of people. She has been helping us to teach everyone all about meerkats in the wild and how keeping them in captivity is very difficult. Her partner Jengo was kept very incorrectly beforehe came to us, he ended up almost bald and missing half his tail. Since his arrival it has spurred Disa on to educate the world about her fellow animals.
Bella the tanuki
Every so often a special baby is born here with us. This year Bella was just that one. She was removed from the nest by her mother and dropped at my feet when she was around 36 hours old. She was hand reared here by us and now is a loveable bundle of joy, she has already won countless hearts across the country and has no intention of stopping. It is a true privilege to have her and when you meet her you will know why.
Stitch the Burmese python
One of the true giants of this world, measuring over 14 feet in length and weighing in at almost 50 kilos Stitch is a real life gentle giant, unbelievably powerful yet remarkably gentle at the same time. To many she is a symbol of fear and terror but to those that have met her she has left nothing but good impressions. Stitch is an albino, this gives her the striking yellow colouration. Burmese pythons hail from the island of Burma and are amongst the 4 largest snake species in the world.
Tina the tarantula
Tina is a mexican red knee tarantula, perhaps the most famous of species. They are the most commonly used spiders in TV and film due to their excellent disposition. Tina herself has been to many photoshoots but is still waiting for her big television break. She has also cured countless people of their arachnophobia. Tarantulas are one of the most amazing and underrated animals on this planet. When we visit you we will show you why.
Sarah the boa constrictor
Known for stopping people dead in their tracks Sarah is unbelievably friendly. She loves to explore and meet new people. She hails from South America in the wild but Sarah was captive bred here in the UK. Boa Constrictors are capable of reaching 13 feet in length and weighing over 40 kilos making them a very large and powerful animal.
