The cabin is situated in our yard in front of our horses, if assistance is required please feel free to ask a member of staff. Our collection of reptiles can vary, so come along and see what animals we have to make your day special. Our reptiles are very friendly so if you would like to hold or handle one of our little friends please ask a member of our team who will be more than happy to help you.
At the farm we have two terrapins Bert and Ernie they are very social animals and like to live in pairs. They live in water and spend their days swimming about their tank. Terrapins can live between 25-30 years. The main food the year are dried prawns but can eat a variety of foods including live bugs.
We have four Horse Field tortoise, Dude, they are natural grazers and in the wild they spend most of their day grazing. In Dudes vivarium he has a constant heat source available but also a place to cool down if he gets too hot. Tortoises love eating fresh greens and fruit like strawberries, it is important that you don’t give them too much of the certain fruits as it can be bad for them. Tortoises are slow moving animals and can be quite docile animals making them easy to handle and look after.
Our two Leopard Geckos Arthur and Arnold, make very good pets as they are easy to care for and extremely docile. You can keep Geckos together but it is important that they are the same size to avoid fighting. The main foods geckos tend to eat are live crickets and mealworms.
We have two snakes, one corn snakes Sadie and one a royal python. Snakes can be easy to handle and can make great pets if looked after properly. Our snakes are fed frozen animals, which can be from little baby mice to rabbits, depending on its size.
Cherub is a chilli rose tarantula she lives on her own. She periodically sheds her external skeleton in a process called molting. In this process they also replace internal organs, such as female genitalia and stomach lining. They can even regrow lost appendages!
Merlin our Bearded Dragon is a type of lizard native to Australia. They enjoy basking on rocks in the sun and chilling in the shade to cool off. So at the farm we provide a heat lamp so they still get that same feeling of the sun, especially as we don’t get much of that here! Even though Bearded dragons look very spiky and dangerous they aren’t their spikes are soft, flexible and aren’t very sharp. Bearded dragons make amazing pets as they don’t grow very large, eat a wide variety of foods from plants to insects and are very friendly.
