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.

Took my 10 year old granddaughter. Was pleasantly surprised at the facility. It was obvious the staff working there really enjoyed their work and were very knowledgeable. The fees for admittance were extremely reasonable, would have expected to pay more. You can also pay a fee for a more personal tour when you can feed the tortoise and hold a... More

We really enjoyed this small reptile zoo, the show was good and very informative, there seemed to be lots of zoo keepers there to ask any questions and it appeared well organized and excellent care for the reptiles. We spent about two and a half hours there and that seems like adequate time to visit there. It was fun.

This location is small - it can be seen in 1-2 hours. They do have shows if you want to stay and watch them. My children had a good time seeing something different (reptiles).

For 150.00$, you can do the behind the scenes encounter and see the facility in a different light. For 25 dollars extra you can take personal shots with creatures from the wild. Bigger the creature then a little bit more. All proceeds goes to support wildlife and the facility and all the food they have to create to feed the... More

This is a little zoo focused on reptiles. Kids and adults will find this place quite interesting. The best part is watching the poisonous snakes attack mice and eat them whole! Need I say more!!!! Find out when this happens because this alone is worth the price of admission.

We took our 4 yr old grandson to Reptilia for the first time. He totally enjoyed it. We spent two hours looking at the reptiles through the glass enclosures and Watching the shows where you got to pet the turtles and the snakes. It was interesting watching the Asian water monitors ( they look like crocodiles) during the feeding time.... More

My son's favourite place ever. Excellent day trip destination. Lots of snakes, turtles, crocs, lizards and other creepy crawlies. Their summer camp programs are great too, and their birthday parties are excellent. They have a behind the scene tour that can be added onto a visit (additional cost), but its well worth it if you are into reptiles. Keep an... More

This was a awesome experience for my grandchildren! My two grandsons just love all the reptiles they got to see. We even got to see them feed a dead rat to one of the snakes! It was creepy seeing that but my grandson's just loved it! Also they had a show with snakes which you are allowed to touch them.... More

It's a small reptile zoo; does not have a huge stock of animal but has great variety of star attractions which is otherwise difficult to get under a single roof. The noted mentions are 1. Different varieties of Pythons and Anacondas - some are quite big 2. Venomous snakes like Black and Green Mambas, Vipers and Rattle Snakes 3. King... More
