Those with a soft spot for reptiles should visit Reptilandia, situated a little off the beaten track, near Agaete in the northwest of the island. It includes a collection of snakes, tortoises, turtles and lizards - the Komodo Dragon here is believed to be the largest lizard in the world. There are also sections on spiders and monkeys.
