Animal Holding

We have a range of beautiful friendly guinea pigs and a gorgeous blue tongue lizard whom you can hold.

All our animal holding areas are supervised so you do have staff supporting you and educating you on the correct way to hold the animals. Don't worry if you’re not confident enough to hold an animal we still get them out for you to have a pat or to even feed them a piece of grass. We are here to help you and help grow your confidence around animals. (There are no extra fees for animal holding).
