The Green Planet is excited to welcome a new generation of exotic furry and slithery residents to its home in City Walk, and throughout November, are offering visitors the chance to experience the babies of the biodome.
Leaders in animal welfare in the region, The Green Planet has been home to over 3,000 exotic plants and animals since it first opened its doors back in 2016. Across the last three years, the team is proud to have welcomed multiple babies through successful conservation and education-focused breeding of some of the rarest and most endangered species.
The one-of-a-kind indoor tropical bio-dome pride themselves on maintaining a safe and nurturing environment for their residents, and are excited to have welcomed a new generation of ‘post-millennial’ babies across the past few months, ranging from the smallest of insects to some of the largest breeds of snakes.
Breeding is an important sign of excellent animal husbandry and welfare and The Green Planet’s Animal Care team is passionate about giving all the support their new animal mammas and babies may need.
Get down to The Green Planet this November for your chance to get up close and personal with the newest family members of the biodome, who will be showcased in a Biologist presentation that will take place at 1.30pm daily. Throughout the special presentation, you and your family can meet and learn more about some of The Green Planet’s little ones!
New arrivals include the Crested and New Caledonian Geckos, Carpet and Ball Pythons, Panther Chameleons, Baby Sugar Gliders, Bearded Dragons, Hedgehogs and even baby Bats.
There will be plenty of adorable photo opportunities, plus expert biologists on site to share all of the interesting facts about each animal and educate visitors on the reasons why this breeding is so important.
A noteworthy addition to The Green Planet family is the Crested Gecko, a particularly vulnerable species famously known for playing hide and seek with the world. First discovered in 1866 by a French zoologist, it was later thought to be extinct until it was rediscovered in 1994, and now through successful breeding – several baby Crested Geckos now calls The Green Planet home.
