About the Animals

Every Zoo, Park, or Sanctuary curator faces the same problem, “What animals should we exhibit?”

The Canberra Reptile Sanctuary has the same issue, however, we have thought long and hard to answer the question and maximise the experience for every visitor.

Instead of being a ‘Post Stamp’ collection of reptiles and amphibians, every exhibit and every animal on display has its own Research, Conservation, or Education story to tell. The stories aren’t just about Australian Reptiles and Amphibians, Exotic species and invasive species also form a part of the Sanctuary exhibits.
