In Labenne in the Landes, Reptiland opened its doors in the year 2000. More than 150 animals can be seen in their terrariums spread over 1,600 square meters. 1 hour 15 minutes from the Landes Bleues campsite by motorway, i.e. around 90 km, set off to discover the captivating world of reptiles.
Between royal pythons, boas, alligators, iguanas, turtles, caimans and many more, discover with your family a bewitching world of reptiles from all over the world. The Alligator greenhouse will allow you to admire impressive animals, between alligators measuring up to 3 meters long and weighing up to 250 kg, more than 20 species of spectacled caimans as well as Nile crocodiles. You will be able to safely observe large snakes such as the anaconda, the reticulated python measuring 7 meters for 100 kg, as well as the seba python, the most snake of the African continent. On the side of Iguane Park, reptiles in semi-freedom without any glass or barrier are to be observed directly, including monitor lizards, the largest existing species of lizard in the world.
To become familiar with reptiles, nothing beats exploring the reptilarium in complete safety, where children can touch the animals and pet them. An educational film is also screened to learn more about the management of the park and the animals. Activities are offered from the age of 8, people with disabilities included. Everyone, adult or child, can become a trainer for half a day by participating in the activities of the park team trainers. It is a unique experience to observe turtles and crocodiles even more closely and to feed snakes. The staff of the reptilarium introduces you to the profession of trainer and then offers you a guided tour. You will know how to clean the terrariums and discover all the secrets of the way of life of the different reptiles. Budding keepers, the children help prepare meals and feed the iguanas, turtles and monitor lizards. Adults are not left out, between a guided tour of the site and staff premises and feeding carnivorous reptiles. Each apprentice trainer can observe the snakes and participate in their feeding.
