We loved our experience here. It was full of amazing animals and well educated staff. The snakes were amazing as well as the ginormous alligators. Our children enjoyed the feeding demonstration of the gators. We will defiantly go back. Well managed and so impressed.

This was our splurge for our trip to Edisto. Definitely pricey for a large family but it was worth it. The exhibits were pretty cool and the snake show was awesome! Gift shop was fun for the kids. Highly recommend.

First off, I have to say, if snakes make you squeamish (like they do me) this might not be the place for you. With that being said, my 4-year-old son was absolutely mesmerized by the reptiles! When we got there, we entered through a gift...More

This was my second trip to the Sepentarium. My first visit was back in 2015 but was unable to really enjoy the outdoor exhibits because it was pouring down rain. This time, though, the weather cooperated. Their collection of snakes is unbelievable as is there...More

Surprised at how interesting and fun this was. Stayed for two shows; milking snakes and introduction to local snake varieties. Each show beneficial in its own. Then walking around the grounds to view the pits was great. I could have spent hours watching the turtles...More

Hubby and I have spent quite a lot of time in Edisto. So, one day after many visits, we decided we should check this place out. We made it in time to see one of the feedings of the gators. I sort of felt bad...More

The Serpentarium is a wonderful zoo run by people who know about and care about reptiles. The exhibits are well done and there are a great variety of reptiles on display. Most people would probably buzz through the Serpentarium in 2 hours but not us!...More
