Our Keeper Workshops offers an in-depth look at how to keep Reptiles in captivity. We cover a variety of subjects within time, as listed below. These sessions are perfect for new pet owners, students studying animal management or even those who would like to experience the responsibilities of pet ownership before/ instead of the commitment. These are designed for 2 participants, if one is under 18 they must be accompanied by an adult.
So come and visit us for a fun and informative Keeper Workshop at our premise in sunny Southend-on-Sea, Essex. You could even make a day of it and visit some of the other fun attractions our seaside town is famous for, including the World's Longest Pleasure Pier.
If you are looking to have more fun handling a variety of animals we suggest you look at our Experiences or you could tag a one hour handling experience on to your workshop for an additional £50.
