While they may not like like much now, Blackbutt Reserve's newest residents will be over three metres long when fully grown.

Two olive pythons will be the stars of the new reptile shows starting next month.

They'll be joined by a mature female bearded dragon, some eastern long-necked turtles and various creepy crawlies.

Blackbutt Reserve coordinator Brad West said a competition to name one of the pythons will launch on social media next week, with the winners offered a meet-and-greet with the snake.

The new reptiles are replacements after Blackbutt's former collection was stolen in September last year.
