Green Iguana

Halls Gap Zoo News – July 2011

Animal Action

It has been nearly all reptile relocation this month.
“Shrek” the Green Iguana is now on display in his new enclosure in the zoo entrance building. He came to us from Brisbane’s Alma Park Zoo, Queensland in January last year. Shortly after arriving, Shrek made a few public appearances including the Horsham Art Gallery, Hamilton Library and Ararat Library. Since then he has been off display, we thought until we were able to construct a Reptile House, but we have been able to source a suitable display unit that, with some shuffling in the entrance building, enables us to put him on view now.
Sharing his enclosure are Star and Hermann’s Tortoises.
Other additions for public viewing are two Boa Constrictors who now have a home in the Fossil Cave.


The Pygmy Marmoset enclosure is nearly completed ready for their expected arrival on Monday 11th July.


We would like to thank Dianne & team at Pykes Pets & Cycles for their continued support of the zoo and Ian & Heather Seaman from Dulkeith Computer Solutions for their sponsorship of the Giraffe/Zebra Complex.
