Clyde Peeling's Reptiland, Allenwood

4.4
Clyde Peeling's Reptiland is an AZA accredited zoo specializing in reptiles and amphibians from around the world! Explore the realm of mambas, cobras, vipers, pythons, and other rare and beautiful snakes. Experience giant alligators, gentle tortoises, curious lizards, and colorful frogs. See the world's largest lizard--the komodo dragon--in a state-of-the-art habitat.

Stunning naturalistic habitats, fun interactive exhibits, live shows, and hands-on animal encounters make Reptiland an educational adventure for the whole family!

Reptiland is a year-round destination with modern indoor exhibits. During warmer months, tortoises, iguanas, and Komodo dragons venture into outdoor habitats while seasonal exhibits featuring butterflies and animatronic dinosaurs bring visitors back year after year.

Amazing animals, personal attention, and friendly experts--an intimate wildlife connection!

The average Reptiland visit requires about 2 hours, but there is no limit to the length of a visit. The exhibits are self-guided, and it’s generally best to arrive just before a show.

  • My entire family visited on a freezing Sunday in January. Admission price was very reasonable, and very few people were there. Displays and habitats are well-maintained and it's easy to see the animals close up. Two separate hands-on "shows" where staff brings various animals and talks about them and lets you interact with them were quite informative and enjoyable. Staff is very kid-friendly and seemed to enjoy answering their questions and showing off the animals. The dinosaur exhibit was "closed" for the winter (meaning the animatronics weren't on), but you can still see them and take pictures. I particularly enjoyed the budgie greenhouse, where you can feed the birds for a small fee and they perch on your shoulder or hand. An awesome gift shop awaits for after your visit, with great items at every price point. My children came away with small souvenirs (which they are really enjoying) at less than $5 each. There's a snack bar with indoor seating and snack items (bags of chips, fruit, small individual snack bags) for sale. We were here for a few hours, going between displays, re-looking at various animals, watching snakes be fed, and playing with the electronic interactive exhibits.
  • Okay pros: place is CLEAN, priced reasonable, most of staff is pretty helpful and informative. Plenty of parking, wide variety of reptiles. Reptiles are WELL taken care of for sure. Only cons: wish it was bigger. Only really can spend maybe 2hours (maybe 3 hours but ehhh that would be dragging it out) taking your time seeing everything. Wish they would slowly build on and add more.
  • Easy access. Plenty of parking. Very friendly staff. Clean and well-kept grounds and gift shop. Very interesting concept. Can spend at least 5 hours there. Really neat if you're into dinosaurs. Make sure you bring your cameras
  • This place was awesome! Nice exhibits, healthy looking reptiles and habitats, nice place to spend an hour or two. They have a small eating area with packaged snacks, clean bathrooms. They also have shows where you can touch the animals along with an aviary. Gift shop was reasonably priced.
  • My 2 year old loves it here! The staff are so friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoy our afternoons exploring and learning about all kinds of reptiles!
