Event description
Animal Encounter tours are held at Merrist Wood College and allow visitors to view the amazing animal collection at the College.

About this event

Animal Encounter tours are held at the Merrist Wood College Animal Management Centre and include:

- The Arid Biome; housing species such as Cuban iguana, tortoises, three banded armadillo and Von der Decken’s hornbills…

- The Tropical Biome; housing species such as coati, black throated monitor lizard, forest dragons, tree frogs and turtles…

- Husbandry Room; housing a wide selection of birds and reptiles including bearded dragons, corn snakes, royal pythons, tortoises and fish…

- Walled Garden; to meet the meerkats

Our experienced Animal Encounters Keeper Team will provide information on the different species, and allow visitors to meet some of the animals. We aim to educate visitors on subjects such as conservation, breeding projects and bio-diversity. There may also be an opportunity for visitors to handle or feed some of the animals (COVID-19 restrictions may apply to some animals). Please be aware that there will be free-flying birds in the biomes.
