Non-European species welcome: 

  • Sulcatas: we have a super warm large indoor run, ideal for up to 15 kg. Bigger than that, we would struggle in the winter months but during the summer we have a large secure paddock.

  • Leopards & Stars: we have big indoor runs, with extra night heat ideal for these guys

  • Redfoots: we have a 'Forest Floor' enclosure with deeper soil and lots of leaves to create their preferred higher humidity, and can feed their preferred diet inc mushrooms

  • all our tropical species will also have an outdoor run with a heat lamp zone for summer days
