Giant Crocodile God – Egyptian King – “The Lost World of Reptiles” Exhibit
Natureworks Custom Giant Crocodile God sits on Throne as you enter to the Australian Reptile Park Reptile Exhibit. The Exhibit depicts elements from Ancient Egypt, Athens, and Rome more often than not in a humorous, tongue-in-cheek manner. The result has been the creation of a very fun and highly educational adventure.
Just inside the croc-mouth, an animated Egyptian mummy urges visitors through to the Lost World of Reptiles. Upon entering the spacious recreation of Kom Ombo, awe-struck visitors are confronted by the five metre tall crocodile god Sobek, guardian of the pharaohs and ambassador of the reptile kingdom. From his golden throne, with feet soaking in a pool full of live crocodiles, Sobek thunders a reptilian-righteous oration, punctuated with billowing puffs of smoke and bursts of thunder and lightning.
The Lost World of Reptiles offers a fresh and unique approach to zoo displays that successfully enhances the wonderment, appreciation and understanding of visitors for nature, while at the same time creating an memory of a great day out.
