I was not sure about going to the serpentarium but my granddaughter wanted to go. I was pleasantly surprised. It was exciting, fun, and very clean. I learned a lot about snakes, alligators and the like. I would go again :)

No visit to Edisto Island is complete without a stop here. Excellent shows teach all about snakes and alligators. Come when the weather is warm to watch the alligators being fed. They stop feeding them when the temperature drops below 80 because alligators can't digest food when cold. The attraction closes down for the winter when the alligators go into... More

A very nice attraction, the shows were very will set up with a great explanation of all of the animals there. All in all, a great way to spend a few hours.

We weren't sure what to expect when going to the serpentarium, I just kept telling my two year old we were headed to the "snake zoo" and hoped that I wasn't telling a lie. To our surprise, it was a really fascinating and educational place full of snakes, turtles and alligators. I will say that my husband is the snake... More

Wow what a disappointment to have this closed on a Wednesday. This must be a hobby and not a business. We got the children ready and had to pack them back up after we read the sign on the door and not the lighted sign out front. Along with the dirty diapers in the center of the parking lot we... More

This place definitely exceeded expectations. It seems like an odd attraction on Edisto Island, but it was surprisingly big and had a ton of reptiles. It's a break from the beach and worth the trip.

We visited with teenagers, a young child, and an older father. I was a little skeptical, thinking there was a decent chance that it was going to be a handful of cheesy displays and not much more. I was very nicely surprised! The exhibits were very well put together habitats. The alligator feeding was educational and entertaining. The highlight for... More

We had a great experience at the Serpentarium with our young children. They found the snake shows to be fascinating and the alligator feedings were "cool, awesome, amazing".

If you're into reptiles and gators, you'll love the Serpentarium in Edisto. Lots of indoor / outdoor exhibits including a very informative snake talk and gator feeding. They even have an albino alligator. Worth the visit if you're an animal love, have kids, or just have a couple of hours to kill.
