Adam Hemsley has loved animals since he was a child.
He has always dreamed of having his own collection.
He started small, with a few reptiles in his garden, and the collection continued to grow.
Now the 22-year-old is the proud owner of the country's newest, smallest zoo.
The Hemsley Conservation Centre near Wrotham has all kinds of exotic creatures and, as Lydia Hamilton finds out in the video below, he is not finished yet.
A woman in Kent, who's almost 100 years old, has taken to the Internet to fight plans to bulldoze her home.

Two swans have been found dead in woods near Wrotham. They had been shot through the neck and dumped.
Police were alerted by a member of the public in woodland off Terrys Lodge Road.
The RSPCA has been informed and the swans have been removed by police.
PC Daphne Allen, of Kent Police, said: “The animals did not have any identification rings around their legs to suggest where they had come from. They may have been shot locally, or they may have been hunted in the wild and then their bodies driven to the location and left there."
In both attacks, Phipps was described as “chubby” and wearing army-style trousers.
He was arrested last October and initially denied the attacks but DNA analysis proved there was less than a one in a billion chance the attacker was anyone else but Phipps.
Maidstone Crown Court heard that in January 1986 Phipps attacked a 14-year-old schoolgirl as she walked home along a secluded public footpath in Halling.
A subsequent police investigation failed to identify a suspect.
In June 1991, Phipps struck again when he attacked a 23-year-old woman on an unmarked footpath in Wrotham.
When evidence gathered from the two offences was re-examined in 2012, police discovered the DNA of the attacker belonged to Phipps.
DNA analysis proved there was less than a one in a billion chance the attacker was anyone else but Phipps.
