The python encounter is the perfect way to introduce kids to snakes in a non-scary way. Our rangers will introduce you to these relaxed reptiles and can give you some insight into caring for these beautiful reptiles.

Be sure to arrive 30 minutes early and get ready to learn new things about our scaly friends. The encounter is a brief experience that lasts a couple of minutes with each visitor booked, however please plan up to 15 minutes to meet your host and keeper, and hear the safety briefing.

When you purchase a Close-up Encounter you are directly contributing to Zoos Victoria's work to fight wildlife extinction.
