Animal Biology

Arrive at Akamba Tropical House, where you will meet a whole host of animals, including invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles and birds!

Learn about the individual dietary requirements of each of our animals, whilst getting involved in feeding duties. Discover how diet plays an important role in health and the methods that keepers use to ensure animals are provided with the correct nutrition.

You will have already learnt that animals come in all shapes and sizes… So now it’s time to explore their bodies. How does a snake move without any legs? Why does a tortoise have a shell? What is an exo-skeleton?
