  • Yes, it was a little smelly and yes, it could use a little air. A few of the cages were a little smaller than I would have liked them to be but it was a great place for the kids. It was really a place...  read more »
  • Not what we expected. Took out grandson and were very disappointed. The staff did not offer any help or explanation of exhibits. Also, the exhibits were dirty and smelled. Not worth the money. 
  • We took our grandson to the zoo because he likes everything reptilian. He was not disappointed. The collection is very extensive to view and sells various species and supplies. You can schedule a grou...  read more »
  • Cool place to check out a variety of turtles, snakes, and other small and big reptiles. This place also sells animals and animal food. You can also feed the turtles if u want and take a pic with a python. The 5 dollar donation/admission is pretty reasonable, specially for the amount of animals they have there. Definitely worth checking this place out.
  • so many snakes and reptiles! We recently purchased a snake with a lot of problems (mites, bites, and wasn't eating) from a different store. We asked one employee a questions and ended the conversation 20-30 minutes later with so much good information. This employee took time and gave us his full attention, giving us information about our ball python. The place itself was enjoyable and huge, but this employee made our trip special!! (it was the male taking the pictures that day) He just had the best attitude and wanted to share his knowledge and we appreciate it as new, scared, worried snake owners!! Will definitely come back when we visit L.A. again!
  • Very interesting actually I think they may have more reptiles then at the San Diego Zoo. Definitely worth the $5 admission price. Only negative some of the reptiles cages had labels and descriptions and some didn't have any markings at all. Oh and as to people comments about the small cages apparently reptiles prefer a limited space it makes him feel safer.
  • The staff were nice and the reptiles were interesting but it was pretty sad to see so many of the reptiles in very small cages. I agree with the other reviews on here that mention that. Some look calm but plenty of them look frantic to try to get out of their cages. It really looked inhumane in that regard. I think something should be done about mandating larger habitats. It was very sad to see this.
  • Really nice me boy loved it. 6 yr old. Staff cool.
