“A great place to discover and explore”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We had a great time exploring this beautiful little destination. We took 3 little boys and they had a blast. The venom extraction demonstration was especially exciting! I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to learn more about reptiles and Florida.

“Great experience!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

Spent a few hours here with my two teenage boys and had a great time! Short nature trail walk with lots of animals and awesome snake exhibits in the center. Really cool to see snakes in person you only see on tv, like black mambas! Don't miss the venom extraction demonstration, really good! They brought out some very gentle snakes to hold before the show, boas or pythons I think. The show is behind glass but narrated and very interesting. They do different snakes but we saw Coral snakes, copperheads, eastern diamondback rattlers, and cobras. So cool to see the cobras stand up! If you are near Daytona (in Deland) take a few hours off the beaten path and be sure to visit!

Had heard about this place about a year or so ago. Finally made it here. We spent a couple of hours here. My teen son enjoyed it also.

“Reptile Learning Center”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

I love their personable approach to teaching students and the public about reptiles and amphibians. I was able to find a home there for my turtle, a red-eared slider. They were very compassionate and caring when I dropped him off to his new home.
