Reptile Garden

Want to see a real-life dragon? We may not have a fire-breathing one but we do have a family of Komodo dragons and a collection of other cold-blooded species crawling around their naturalistic reptilian habitat in search of a spot to bask in the sun.

A must-see at Reptile Garden is our gentle giant tortoises. Visitors can come up close to the second largest species of tortoises as they lumber around their sandy exhibit.

Don’t forget to check out the array of snakes that come in all shades, shapes and sizes at the Snake House – such as the mighty reticulated python, lethal rattlesnake and water-loving anaconda!

Komodo Dragon

The Komodo dragon is the largest lizard in the world, growing to 3 metres long and weighing more than 100 kilograms. Fearless and muscular, they can take down prey much larger than themselves. Komodo dragons are found on the Indonesian islands of Komodo, Rinca and Flores. Local people call them ora or buaja daret, which means land crocodile.

As fearsome as they are, these dragons are one of the most endangered animals around. Look out for engaging exhibit displays including an illustrated one for the kids and unearth the facts of these rare dragons.

Rhino Iguana

Head over to the rhino iguana exhibit where full-length glass panels give a clear view of a family group of these endangered lizards. Originating from the Caribbean island of Haiti, they can be distinguished from other iguana species by the bulbous lump on their heads. These are actually enlarged scales, and males often have larger lumps than the females.

The oldest recorded age is 152 years.

Don’t miss the rare chance to get up close and personal with the Aldabra giant tortoise.  Crawl on over at 1.15pm* for one of our token feeding session.

Snake House

Game for a slithering good time? Make a stop at our Snake House to marvel at the wide array of these carnivorous reptiles, many of which are among the world’s most venomous.

Nestled in glass-fronted exhibits that are lushly planted to the animals' natural habitats, the snakes you’ll want to make a point to see here include our king cobra, shore pit viper, oriental whipsnake, rattlesnake, dog-toothed cat snake and the longest snake in the world, the reticulated python. This python also happens to be the most common snake in Singapore!

In a glass-encased riverine exhibit nearby, you’ll be in the company of our green anaconda. Also known as water boas, this is the world’s heaviest snake species. They are amphibious, preferring to live in swamps and rivers more than on land.

Within this zone, you can also see our collection of other reptiles including the Malayan box turtles, alligator snapping turtles and more.
