HUGE LITTER OF TIGER SNAKES BORN AT THE REPTILE PARK

A Tasmanian tiger snake at the Australian Reptile Park has given birth to an unusually large litter.

While the average litter size is between 20 and 30 reptiles, keepers will have their hands full with the 41 babies born this week.

They will be inducted into the park’s anti-venom program, which saves around 300 lives each year.
