The 50-year-old, who also owns 300 deer, 150 cattle and a number of ostriches, says he fell in love with exotic animals following a trip to the US.  

Mr Johnson, along with his reptiles, feature in episode two of ITV’s ‘Britain's Tiger Kings - On The Trail With Ross Kemp’ which aired on April 6.  

In the programme, which is now available on the ITV Hub, Ross Kemp meets the country’s exotic pet owners following the hit-Netflix documentary with ‘Tiger King’ Joe Exotic.
