REPTILE RESIDENTS WELCOMED AT ALEXANDRA PARK ZOO

Alexandra Park Zoo is now home to 13 cold-blooded creatures.

Bundaberg Regional Council Health and Regulatory Services portfolio spokesperson Cr Wayne Honor said the new enclosures had been added to the display which house a variety of native Queensland reptiles.

“Zoo staff have created several spectacular enclosures which mimic the natural environment of the reptiles,” Cr Honor said.

“So you’ll find our keelback snake in a rainforest waterway display as they spend 80 per cent of their time in the water and our two young coastal carpet snakes are housed in a rural barn setting.

“The custom-built enclosures have heating lamps in them and the temperature is monitored throughout the day to ensure the reptiles are comfortable.”

Cr Honor said Council was lucky enough to secure two lace monitors from local business Snakes Downunder which were housed in an outdoor display at the entrance to the zoo.

The other reptile residents include two bearded dragons, two freckled monitors, two brown tree snakes and two land mullets.

“The reptile displays were open just in time for the June/July school holidays and proved an instant hit with visitors young and old.”

Cr Honor said there had also been some behind-the-scenes improvements at Alexandra Park Zoo as part of its long-term revitilisation.

“The office and work space at the zoo has been renovated to accommodate the extra sustenance requirements that are an inevitable result of increasing the occupancy of the zoo.”
