  • great place if you have no phobias. Dozens, if not hundreds of creatures have been rescued and are now taken care of by the wonderful staff at the zoo. You can be assured the entry fee goes to good us...  more »

  • Crocs! Gators! Snakes! Lizards! More reptiles than you could shake a stick at. Delightful. And not a single amphibian to be seen anywhere. As it should be... I'm looking at you, kayaks at the Canoe Mu...  more »

  • Great exhibits with varying snakes and lizards, lots of information about the different species. The dino walk is lots of fun, and the kids love the crocodiles slide and Croc walk. Come at the right time and you can catch a live info show where kids can learn about reptiles and can touch a very large snake. Great gift shop. Lots of space for picnics, but no food is served here, so pack a lunch or plan to go somewhere after. It is a little expensive, but enjoyable.
  • My favourite place in the whole world. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, the animals are very well cared for, the gift shop has some insanely cool and high quality stuff and the dinosaurs are a lot of fun to see! Staff are very kind and happily answer questions. The curator and assistant curator are really great and very clearly care about the animals. They always have coupons so you never have to pay full price for admission and there are also discount coupons for other local businesses in their newspaper. By far my favourite place to visit - in this area and including the whole of Toronto and Montreal. I would love nothing more than to see this place grow and flourish.
  • Great place to take the kids to learn about reptiles. We had a lot of fun. Only downfall is it's super expensive for a larger family.
  • Everything is expensive here. I know it cost alot to keep things like alligators and stuff but wow. That's said the dinosaur walk is pretty cool and if you have kids that are into snakes and alligators there's nowhere else to go except here really. Worth a stop in at least once for kids I guess but bring your wallet lol.
  • This place is incredible!!! The staff is some of the nicest people I have ever met in my entire life. I 100% recommend going here. It's such a cool experience and you will not be disappointed!
