A pair of bearded dragons have been donated to Newquay Zoo!

Female Treelow and male Rodney, both two years old, are not going to be on show in the Zoo, but instead are to join the team of encounter animals which includes Barry the blue tongued skink, Alvin the skunk and Pickle the penguin!

Events manager Lorraine Reid said, “We are extremely grateful to have been given these awesome creatures and although they will not be on show in the Zoo, they will be stars of our animal encounters; both in the Zoo and when we go out to schools, shows, holiday parks etc.”

Bearded dragons are native to the arid, rocky, semi-desert regions and dry open woodlands of Australia where food is often scarce. Their diet consists mostly of leafy greens, vegetables and non citrus fruits, supplemented regularly with insects. They are adept climbers, spending time on branches and in bushes and spend time near human habitation.
