Reptile House De Aarde

Reptielenhuis De Aarde Breda - Kaaiman

Breda is filled with a rich history and spectacular culture.  Within its borders you can find the Reptile House De Aarde.  This is one of the very first zoos that are made official in Breda.  The main aim of this mini-zoo is the care for reptiles.  Children as well as adults can look and hold some of their inhabitants, while also learning about the animal’s origin, feeding and breeding habits.

They care for a range of different species.  Their enclosures are larger than the standard which provides the animals with a greater well-being.  Each has its own habitat where the temperature can be regulated and care provided as is required.  It provides not only for a great time with the family, but also for an educational outing.

The owner is a vivid reptile hobbyist and devoted to this zoo.  Started through the passion and love for reptiles, the zoo is now providing the city of Breda with a great attraction.  Their prices are quite great and they offer so much in return, that this is a must visit for residents and tourists alike.

Reptiles have been around for millions of years, evolving to an advanced species just like we have evolved as a race.  They have adapted to their surroundings and many live on land while others live in water.  There are many tales surrounding the origin of each reptile.  Some have gone extinct and others have survived.  Learn more by visiting the Reptile House De Aarde in Breda.
