Snakes in the spotlight at Amazonia
Friday, 13 July 2018
A tropical rainforest attraction is set to celebrate World Snake Day on 16th July with a host of activities in honour of the slithery reptiles.
Visitors to Amazonia will have the opportunity to take a closer look at this exotic creature with snake feeding tours, snake handling sessions plus themed arts and crafts activities.
The indoor tropical rainforest is home to more than 16 tropical snakes, with a variety of species including Eric the Burmese Python, Annie the Yellow Anaconda and Milkshake the Pueblan Milksnake.
Amanda Gott, Zoo Manager at Amazonia, said: “We’re looking forward to celebrating World Snake Day with activities themed around our resident serpents.
“They are very fascinating creatures and we’re looking forward to sharing lots of fun facts about them and hopefully dispelling some of the myths around them with our visitors.”
Aside from its snakes, Amazonia is home to an array of exotic animals from tarantulas to marmoset monkeys and parrots and is Scotland’s only indoor tropical rainforest.
Amazonia is open between 10am and 6pm seven days a week and is situated within M&D’s, Scotland’s Theme Park. Further information can be found by visiting www.discoveramazonia.co.uk.
