Man plans reptile zoo... at his home!

Man sets up his own reptile zoo

A man from Weston-super-mare has decided he wants to open his own reptile zoo - in his house!

Rupert shares his home with 70 snakes, 12 lizards, two scorpions and a hairy spider.

He reckons he's going to open up his living room to the public so other people can enjoy them too.

He said: "Animals are my life. They always have been, and all I want to do is share my knowledge with anyone who wants to know about them."
