The reptiles have been in quarantine for the last 30 days after arriving from Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park, and are proving firm favourites with holiday visitors keen to spot them in their new homes, particularly the garter snake, which is a vivid electric blue colour.

A further three new young Jamaican boas remain off show, with keepers hoping to introduce them to the main house in the coming months.
