    I recently discovered that Tasmania now has a reptile park called Serpentarium Wildlife Park. They house a range of reptile species including Green Anaconda, Boa Constrictor, Reticulated Python and Star Tortoise.

    Another new place has recently opened.
    The Frogarium opened in December 2019. They offer daily tours and are situated in Coffs Harbour, NSW. They have around 23 species of frog on-display!

    I've played a bit with the figures from the post above. I've given the number of zoos in each
    State, the number of people in each State per zoo, and because tourism is important to Australian zoos, the number of international visitors per year per zoo in each state. All I can say is that it is a pretty competitive market in Tasmania.
