They were originally a butterfly house but expanded in about 2009 to include crocodiles - as you do! I asked why crocs and they were after something different that hadn't been done before in NZ. They certainly have something different!
Goldie and Scar are the 2 big boys, Goldie about 4.9 metres and Scar about 5 metres. They also have 3 American Alligators and some baby salties. They have a few other creatures but I confess, I didn't really notice them…
I got to ask lots of questions and learnt a lot about behind the scenes of a zoo.
Really enjoyed myself! Thanks very much to Amy and Paul.
