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.

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

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

An absolutely Wonderful facility. Reptillia is clean, educational and lots of fun. Even if snakes creep you out a bit this place is great. You can touch snakes and lizards during presentations and have your picture taken with various animals. The staff are friendly and very good at answering an questions you may have. There is a presentation area with... More

I have been here twice and found both visits very interesting. The animals in the displays range from amphibians such as turtles and frogs to snakes, lizards, crocodiles, alligators, tortoises and even spiders. All were well identified as to their habitat, where they are found in the world, etc. There is a good range and quantity of species. Most were... More

Animals are well taken care of. Facilities are clean. Fun! The anaconda was scary and impressive. Don't be afraid to touch the snakes!

My son first went to Reptilia for a birthday party. He loved it. The staff are great with the kids and so educational. We decided to then have them come to my house for my son's birthday. I wish I could remember the girl who came because she was awesome and very professional. Everyone loved the show, including the adults!
