Woodside Wildlife Park is home to a variety of cold-blooded animals, from small snakes and lizards to the incredible Siamese Crocodile!
Weighing in at about seven stone each, Toby and Monster often surprise everyone with just how fast they can move, especially when it comes to feeding time!
This streamlined lizard spends its life on and under the forest floors and grasslands of Australia and Indonesia. Feeding on pretty much anything it finds, the Blue-Tongued Skink has proven to be very successful in the wild.
Feared by many, but in reality, ‘Sharon’ is an incredibly docile and very friendly Tarantula, who occasionally makes an appearance during our daily ‘Meet the Reptiles’ session.
Dumeril Boa Constrictor
Endemic to Madagascar, this species of snake is an ambush predator, waiting patiently for its prey to get close enough for it to strike. They are non-venomous and kill their prey by constriction.
Native to Australia, the Bearded Dragon gets its name from its beard-like chin, which turns black when stressed or threatened. Often seen in bushes and trees, their diet consists of both insects and plant matter.
Historically worn as jewellery by African rulers, the Royal (or Ball) Python is a small, five foot, non-venomous constrictor, which preys on a variety of small animals from lizards to small birds and rodents.
