I am Spanish, and I remember going to that Natural World place by the end of the 80s, on an English Summer Camp course. We were staying in Bournemouth, but we had a day trip to Poole. I still have that cool "certificate of bravery" with a Polaroid photo of my mates and I holding a huge Indian Python.

Wow, I think that has to be a record - reviving a thread that's nearly nine years old for the first post on the account!

I remember it, although I always called it Poole Aquarium?! I did my work experience there when I was at school. Tony Phelps was there at that time for a short while as he had been out in Africa managing a snake farm previously. It was a great place and there was an associated Reptile society which had monthly meetings.I still see some of the people that used to attend those meets such as Geoff Clarke, Jerry Cole and Dave Bird. No idea what happened to the stock.
