If you can't go to the zoo, the zoo will come to you.
Reptile Village Zoo is the ONLY reptile zoo in Ireland created and directed by James Hennessy. It is located at Demesne Road , Gowran, Co. Kilkenny.
James and other zookeeper are not contained in one location although they still have plenty of animals in They can come to schools, birthdays, other private events and even in shopping malls which I witnessed few days ago. I got the chance to feel the skin of a python about 13 feet in length. I was not so certain of doing it but my husband insisted. It gave me goosebumps. I probably won't do that again. I'll be contented on taking pictures and observing their behavior.
We are interested what other animals can be seen there. So hubby and I are planning to pay the village a visit in a week or two. Will update you with more photos after that trip. For now, hope you find the following animals amazing as we did.
