White is the new black at the Australian National Botanic Gardens, where visitors can see and touch an albino python.

Popular reptile display Snakes Alive! has come to the capital for one week only.

Six venomous species and an albino python are on display, and visitors can also see, touch and learn about reptiles, including rare and threatened species.

Feeding times are always a highlight for children and take place each morning and afternoon.

Learn about some of the region’s threatened wildlife including the Striped Legless Lizard and the Grassland Earless Dragon, and see a variety of reptiles and amphibians from across Australia.

Members of the public receive an exceptional educational experience with the opportunity to learn about reptiles and amphibians in a hands-on way from dedicated ACT Herpetological Association volunteers.

Snakes Alive! is on from Monday 15 January to Sunday 21 January, 10am to 4pm, feeding times 10.30am and 1pm daily. The display is proudly run by the ACT Herpetological Association, whose mission is to promote and protect Australian reptiles and amphibians.
