EDITORS COMMENTS
This print by G.H. Davis showcases the newly opened Reptile House at London Zoo in 1927. The intricate map reveals the layout of the exhibits, each dedicated to a diverse range of reptiles from around the world. The diagrams accompanying the map provide valuable insights into the innovative functions of the Reptile House, including the replacement cage system. The Reptile House was a groundbreaking addition to London Zoo, marking the first dedicated reptile facility in any zoological gardens. It was designed to provide a more natural and humane environment for the reptiles, allowing them to thrive and be observed by the public. The diagrams illustrate various aspects of the Reptile House's design, such as the heating and ventilation systems, which were essential for maintaining the ideal conditions for the various species. The replacement cage system, in particular, was a significant advancement, allowing keepers to easily and safely exchange old cages for clean ones without disturbing the reptiles. Today, the Reptile House remains an integral part of London Zoo, continuing to inspire visitors with its diverse collection of reptiles and innovative design. This print serves as a fascinating glimpse into the history of this iconic building and the important role it played in the development of modern reptile husbandry.
