The Reptile Zoo is really more of a sanctuary than zoo but the information they provide to visitors is great. It allows adults and children to learn more about reptiles who need our protection. Great place for that reason!

We visited with young grandkids - they all enjoyed it. Quite a selection of reptiles - alligators, snakes, geckos etc. Not huge but fun for an hour or so,

My five year old son loves tortoises. He and his cousins had a great time here. It was an inexpensive mini-trip that was worth the money. They have snakes, monitors, turtles and tortoises.
