If you are into snakes of all kinds, than this is the place for you. Lots of rare species and tons of information posted throughout the facility about what you are observing. Price was reasonable for the amount of reptiles that they have on hand and some other creatures too; like a giant snapping Turtle and Iguanas. Two floors, easy... More

Absolutely worth the the cost if you go when they are feeding the snakes. If you're there not during feeding, it's still pretty cool. Tons of snakes. Really good information if you're interested in doing all the reading. But by far the best part was watching them feed the snakes. They open the cages and lure the snakes out. Get... More

It was amazing. My whole family went and we loved it. Scary? yes. They have so many real dangerous and venomous snakes. Take the time to read the store behind the snakes and all other animals. You would be amazed what you learn about them. Before you leave, get a stamp so you can return after walking the board walk... More

Good price. Many reptiles. They did a good job with the habitats. The glass was kept clean in spite of all the kids touching everything. Allow about an hour if you just want to look at the animals and not read everything about them. They have a Ball python that kids can hold out front. I believe they also do... More

We found this place on Tripadvisor and decided to check it out during our recent trip to Wilmington. It is truly a hidden treasure! They have a ton of snakes in gorgeous little exhibits. They also had crocodiles, alligators, iguanas, some huge lizard, and parrots. There are plenty of exhibits to checkout between the 2 floors. This place had some... More

This is a very cool place for anyone that has children that like snakes and dinosaurs and reptiles, things of that nature... I don't particularly like this type of things but my sons really liked it and had a blast. Even my 9 year old daughter went in and checked out all slimey critters haha. You couldn't find me within...
