Melbourne Zoo

Reptile House and World of Frogs

These two amazing adjoining areas display a wide variety of reptiles and amphibians from Australia and around the world.  The world’s most endangered crocodile species,  Australian venomous snakes, and the Veiled Chameleon and Giant Day Gecko from Madagascar are just some of the fascinating species on view in exhibits  designed to represent their natural habitats.  The iconic Frilled Lizards were bred for the first time at Melbourne Zoo.

The World of Frogs next door is the showcase for the amazing frog conservation work being done by dedicated Keepers working on breeding programs for four frog species in great danger in the wild.  This is the only place in the world where it’s possible to see the elusive and rare Baw Baw Frog, native to the Victorian alps.  These frogs are just four of Zoos Victoria’s 21 Fighting Extinction species
