  • From outside you expect not that there is a animal park hidden in Tilburg. It has a diverse collection of reptiles and amphibians, meaning ' foreign ' birds monkeys and a cosy terrace. We've been there with our boys aged 5 and 8. First we visited the snakes and spiders demo. Here you can hold a real Tarantula and a snake around your neck. The staff are friendly and put everyone at ease, so that most be a snake or spider touch. Then started the bird of prey show. Different birds came fly by. Also a number of children were allowed to help with the Barn Owl.

  • Very small-scale, rattling cages which I believe also on the small side. Perhaps that reptiles also need really green instead of nepgroen. If you want to eat something then keeps account with a very limited menu and a long wait. Offered shows are nice and entertaining. The whole does what ages and despite that fixed it should cost a lot to maintain a snappy entrance fee. Perhaps less personnel can print at the bar the costs? The feel of overgrown Petting Zoo but does after the necessary maintenance certainly potential.

  • The park is known as reptile park, but also surprisingly home to many other species such as cats, birds and monkeys. Visit ios definitely recommended.
