Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at Auckland Zoo’s rad reptiles!
In this Fanimals episode, mini zookeeper Anahera catches up with animal experiences keeper Jason to learn more about the reptiles at Auckland Zoo.
First stop is the reptile house where Anahera and Jason feed bearded dragon Steve some yummy locusts and say hello to Dewy – a legless lizard!
Though Dewy may look like a snake he is actually a scheltopusik and you can tell the difference too if you know where to look. Scheltopusiks like Dewy have external ears to hear out of, eyelids instead of membranes and special scales – watch as Jason points them out.
