There was a really good range of species available and they seemed to be well cared for with clean habitats etc. The place did look a bit dingy and sad but they were in the midst... read more

Sadly this had to closedown early this year...it is really to bad as it gave our children a summer job...and it more so gave visitors a great appreciation for our reptiles...this is a big loss for Drumheller as a whole

This place was pretty good but the conditions placed on it to meet regulatory requirements (like a new AC system) helped them decide to just shut it all down.

Reptile world is now This place is closed, it was in the centre of Downtown Drumheller. I asked for the reasons why it closed...they guessed its the economy?

My 4 year old thought the place was pretty neat but myself, I have a lot of experience with reptiles and I didn't find the animals very well kept. The place is absolutely freezing inside which can't be good for the reptiles. I sure hope the heat lamps are warm enough. I noticed the red foot tortoises shells have severe... More

A lot of vipers a full grown aigator and tortoises mAke for a great attraction. A lot of these animals are rescues and were seized at border. The staff does the best they can to clean cages, but glass is foggy sometimes. These are real dinosaurs or their cousins.

We went in the morning, and then back in the afternoon for reading time! So many neat lizards, crocodiles and snakes to check out!

If seeing powerful animals like crocodiles sitting in a concrete enclosure with an inch of filthy fece ridden water, with no natural sunlight is your idea of educational and entertaining time, then this is the place for you. The building itself is in shambles, foul odor, and dirty exhibits. While crocs may not be the highest of intelligence, they would... More

There was a really good range of species available and they seemed to be well cared for with clean habitats etc. The place did look a bit dingy and sad but they were in the midst of renovating so it may improve soon. They also have a focus on conservation- so may have other areas to spend their $ on.

Notwithstanding that I hate snakes, this is a very, very good attraction, with many kinds of snakes, and our group of four to eight year old children absolutely loved it! You wouldn't expect this kind of attraction out in the middle of nowhere in a very nondescript building, but well worth your time!
