  • I went expecting to have seen through word of mouth and I had bad reviews, so it's not much place is much better than I had imagined. Around the entrance to pay admission to the spiders, turtles,, doubles as a pet shop, but charges apply where iguanas, snakes, frogs, alligators, etc. children interested in and watched. Has been acting almost came out from the alligator encounter happened when feeding alligators, was given the chicken had a dazed floated ever opened the cage was impressive. Can small snakes and iguanas in a few Burmese Python in the corner to take photos while shooting me the kids were satisfied.

  • This is the perfect spot for kids, young and old, to learn about our reptile friends! Definitely a great local spot for kids anytime of the year!  more »
  • Couldn't have been better. Boys loved seeing all the creatures and staff was very patient and generous with their time.  more »
  • I recently started working at the Reptile Zoo not too long ago and I was skeptical when I first visited when I noticed all of the small cages and abundance of animals. But after working here for about 2 1/2 months or so I am very surprise by the cleanliness and ability of everyone that works there to inform people about animals and spread there love of animals to the customers. To all the people who reviewed and said that the animals are kept in small cages all day and cages are dirty, this is false. Cages are spot cleaned daily and completely cleaned once a week. We feed all of our animals the appropriate meals when they are supposed to be fed and no one is left hungry. We have so many animals it is impossible to keep track of them all, with more than 60% of our animals being bred in the back and brought in as donations you'd think the people who have bad thoughts about our shop would just ask questions and we would humbly accept explaining to you that we take in people's animals with love and provide them a safe haven to eat, be used for parties and presented, or as an addition to our zoo that our customers love. We are happy to answer any questions at the retail desk if you have any concerns about cages or something that you see that may be wrong. We love our customers but we are here to provide information about animals and give them a home where they will be loved whether it be at the zoo or in your own household. Thank you!!
  • It's a cool facility but it's not worth going back. The staff was extremely rude and seemed to ignore us whenever we asked a question. I was hoping that Jay would be just as nice as he seems on social media, but he was fairly cold and didn't seem interested in meeting the guests. Also, the enclosures for some of the animals are too small. Some of the iguanas and monitor lizards could barely turn around in their enclosures. There were WAY too many sulcata tortoises in each enclosure. It was hard to watch them struggle to move without running into each other. Lastly, the alligators can't move without running into each other. There are 3 gators that are about 6 feet long that aren't able to swim because of the size of the pond. Their conditions are horrible.
