Reptilia is a state of the art 25,000 square foot facility complete with large exhibits showcasing hundreds of different reptiles and amphibians, from giant pythons to massive crocodiles and king cobras. Watch our Cast at work in the nursery, our food preparation area and the venomous workshop! Each day there are a variety of opportunities to interact with our animals and learn from our exceptional Cast Members during our shows, tours and animal feedings! With four reptile feedings every day, free live theatre shows or zoo keeper tours and a chance to interact with the reptiles and the Zoo Cast, Reptilia is a destination worth visiting. Reptilia's Zoo is the first of its kind and it adds another destination to Vaughan's already growing list of attractions.

Even little kids (2 and 4 yr olds) enjoyed this place. The animals are on eye level for children. Some aquariums show the underwater movement and action of the alligators. Lots of movement in the snake exibits. Some frogs are camouflaged, but the children enjoyed looking for them and finding them. A great educational and safe environment.

Really enjoyed our experience at Repltilia. I was happy the learn that the zoo is CAZA certified and the all the animals appeared well taken care of in nicely maintained enclosures. There's a great collection of animals here and a lot of cool education info. My boyfriend and I visit during the day while a few school groups were touring.... More

This was my first experience at Reptilia. I would not call it a zoo due to it's size but it did have a variety of reptiles on display. When I was purchasing my ticket, I was told about the next live feeding. Now I am realistic about the dietary needs of various animals but I have no interest in watching... More

Hello Melanie, Thank you for your review. I hope that you did enjoy your visit here. I want to clarify that we do not feed live animals to our reptiles. All of the rats, mice, chickens, quail, etc. come to us already frozen, just like food that you would purchase at the supermarket, so there isn't really much to worry... More

My kids had so much fun. They loved seeing a snake eat a mouse. There were lots of reptiles to see and a big store to shop in after.

We went early on a Saturday and it was not very busy so the kids were able to see the reptiles without having their view obstructed. We even watched them feed a mouse to a snake. It was pretty neat and gross at the same time but still something to experience for all ages and was educational as well.

This is good only for an hour or less. I find it very limited and I'd rather just go with my kids to the zoo. I especially didnt like that the staff didn't want to say how long it takes to go around the exhibits. When we went in, that's when I understood why. It can be done in less... More

My kids love going here on rainy days. Good way to pass time and see different Reptiles. They love the show and touching the reptiles. We will definitely go back again.
