As much as I hate snakes, this exhibit is completely worth the time and the money. I would most definitely return for a visit.

This attraction is gone. Moved to Florida according to the nice woman going to the nearby burger place. Too bad, my boys were looking forward to visiting.

The Reptile World Zoo has a wonderful array of of reptiles, and a few other creatures. Lots to see and look at. I have two little kids though and ahd to take turns picking them up to see everything...it would have been a little better if they had a little more space.

I went here with my family and had a great time! We had noticed that the aligator had lost a tooth and the owner opened the cage and got it out and gave it to us! It made every ones night! He in no way had to do that or was asked but did so any way! What a great... More

This is in the middle of nowhere. Seriously. When we pulled up to it, there were no visible cars, anywhere. It looks like a huge metal shed with reptiles painted on it, so I knew we were in the right place. We met the lady that runs it, she showed a some of the snakes. It has four large rooms... More

You get to look at a lot of exotic reptiles. Including: alligators, tortoises, sand boas, Iguanas, and bearded dragons! May be a little overpriced

Neat place to visit! If you like herps, it's a must stop. Owner sets you free to look around all you want for a small fee of $8. Snakes, turtles, frogs, lizards, alligator, crocodile, goats, pot bellied pigs, and much more. Owner does interact with guests and even riled up the cobras, and croc for us. I recommend for all...

Me and my 6 year old daughter had a good time, we were amazed at all the awesome reptiles they had in there, especially "Baby" (you'll be floored when you meet her!) The big turtles were equally impressive though and they even let us hold a small snake which was a nice treat. Overall we loved it and are going... More
