Keeper at the Australian Reptile Park Brandon Gifford said, “We love getting into the Christmas spirit here and so do our animals! We needed to make sure these little guys had the perfect first Christmas and I think we pulled it off!”


Mr Gifford continues, “Although the park itself closes on Christmas Day, a few keepers still come to work to ensure the animals are fed and enjoying Christmas just like everyone else. It’s just as important to us that we spend our Christmas with these guys as well as our human families, they are a part of family too!”
