  • Couldn't have been better. Boys loved seeing all the creatures and staff was very patient and generous with their time.  more »
  • I was a bit dubious when I saw it was located in a shopping center in Fountain Valley. Thinking it would be a small, uninteresting place, I went in with trepidation. WHAT A DELIGHT. The turtle pond is...  more »
  • As a last minute event our friend suggested going to The Reptile Zoo prior to our long travel evening with 2 young children. I think my son enjoyed the Reptile Zoo more than he did Disneyland! He ran ...  more »

  • I am a huge fan of reptiles. This place almost made me cry of sadness and anger. All the cages were filthy and way to small. I saw about 6 snakes and 2 lizards with serious mouth rot, about 4 snakes wheezing and drooling (upper respiratory infection), 2 others had scale rot. Almost every snake of the hundreds had wrinkles, flat stomach, faded scale colors, and foggy eyes. The big pythons were in cages so small they were in big coils with no room to move or stretch out at all. While the rest were all put together of about 4-6 in the same tank. They were also clearly over weight. Even their turtles and alligators were all crammed together in a tiny enclosures with barely any room to move. The people who gave this place a good rating know nothing or don't care about animal health. I have seen lots of animal places that have animals with poor health, but I have NEVER seen animal health near as bad as reptile zoo. If you love reptiles, DO NOT visit the reptile zoo so the place can shut down and the cruelty can end.
  • My son liked this place it was fun. We only spend about an hour and a half and that was plenty as it is small. It would be nice if we could have held some more of the reptiles. We were able to hold 2 lizards and a snake and feed some turtles and some fish. Definitely worth the money.
  • My kids love to go here and see all the reptiles. They also have hands on experience. I have taken my kids here and now my grandkids. They love it.
  • I went for a 5-year old birthday party. The place has so many reptiles. The staff knows their stuff and educates visitors about the different animals. It's fun for kids and even adults like me that are a little bit apprehensive.
  • Great place to have FUN! So many creatures. From a tiny Bird-Eating Tarantula, to a 20 ft. Snake.
