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 to a show.

  • We only had time for a quick stop here, in the middle of a long road trip from Maryland to upstate NY, but it made for a memorable pit stop! The cros were impressive, the big turtles even more so, but...  more »
  • We took our two sons (6 and 4) and spent over 4 hours at Clyde Peeling's Reptiland. This place far exceeded our expectations especially with the varied number of species. We saw 5 of their shows which...  more »
  • We stopped late in the day on a Sunday as we were passing by. It was only an hour and a half before closing but still left us plenty of time to see everything. We saw the last part of the reptile show...  more »

  • It's a great local treasure to have an educational and fun activity for the kids. I grew up near the National Zoo in Washington, DC and it would not at all be fair to compare this to their reptile house. When taken in the context of a small town reptile zoo it's very well done. All staff I have ever interacted with are very knowledgeable. They are great at interacting with kids both in their shows and when on the floor near the animals. We enjoy going back enough to buy annual memberships.
  • This is a great place. Educational and fun with informed and friendly staff. However, I have two complaints. First, I'd love to see a larger picnic area. When there are several schools all trying to enjoy the day for their field trips, things get really crowded, really fast. That being said, my next issue is that of restrooms. They only have one actual bathroom. The rest are port-a-johns and then there are only 2 portable sinks for handwashing after use.
  • The animals are well cared for & the keepers are well trained, knowledgeable, & courteous. The exhibits​ & gift shop are clean. Very impressive gift shop! The staff seems happy to educate. A super sweet experience for the whole family.
  • Thought this was an excellent place to visit. Our son lives Turtles and they had tons of them! Fairly priced, and a nice gift shop for some souvenirs as well.
  • This was amazing to take the kids to, we saw a show and touched an alligator. Best part was the parakeet enclosure. $2 buys you a large seeded popsicle stick (we did one in each hand)...birds come flocking to/on you, it's AMAZING!
