New feature attraction
Visit the secret temple at Great Yarmouth and come face to face with its new guardians, the African Dwarf Crocodiles. They might have a home here but their natural habitat, in West Africa, is being destroyed by deforestation. These beautifully sleek and sinister reptiles, which grow to just 5 feet long rely on the trees and plants along the banks of the rivers it inhabits for shelter and, as a result of its loss, are now becoming increasingly endangered.
