The reptiles in Melbourne Zoo have no excuse not to improve their physical fitness after a special hydro gym was built to keep them healthy.

The reptiles in the zoo’s care, which include eastern diamond-back rattlesnakes as well as smaller lizards and turtles, have been encouraged to improve their swimming by using the new gym.

Video shared by the zoo shows the reptiles taking advantage of their time in the water.
