The park will also be launching their BRAND NEW croc show with Elvis jumping out of water to snatch his food off the keepers every day of the holidays at 1:30pm – warning to visitors, they may get wet!!
The holidays will also see the launch of a daily meet-and-greet with one of the world’s most notorious and largest of all the lizards, the Komodo dragon! Visitors will be able to walk alongside a giant dragon and even give it a pat – if they dare!
The Park is home to the world’s deadliest snake the inland Taipan, the world’s longest snake the reticulated python, the world’s largest crocodilian the saltwater crocodile, the world’s largest spider in their tarantula collection, the world’s deadliest spider the funnel web spider, the world’s longest venomous snake the King Cobra and the world’s largest lizard the Komodo dragon. Of course Australia is also home to the 11 most deadly snakes in the world and we have them ALL at The Australian Reptile Park!
Some of Australia’s most infamous spiders will also be a part of the Deadly & Dangerous show series, as keepers demonstrate how to react if bitten by the highly venomous Funnel-Web or Red back spider, commonly found in Australia.
