The place doesn't smell, even with that many animals, and you can spend a little time, or a lot of time. More species than the San Diego Zoo. Would give them 5 stars, but they only allow touching a couple of animals.

I definite place to come to with children and quite appropriate for adults. I was impressed with the variety of reptiles from around the world.

Couldn't have been better. Boys loved seeing all the creatures and staff was very patient and generous with their time.

I was a bit dubious when I saw it was located in a shopping center in Fountain Valley. Thinking it would be a small, uninteresting place, I went in with trepidation. WHAT A DELIGHT. The turtle pond is right by the entrance. You can buy...More

Based on Yelp reviews, we decided to try this place out. We took our 2 year old daughter to this zoo. The first impression was surprised from the outside, it just looks like a regular 'pet shop'. It seems so small and had nothing interesting....More

Our five year old granddaughter is visiting from Colorado and her aunt took her to Prehistoric pets this morning (It opens at 11:00 AM) where she really enjoyed the visit. Snakes, lizard and other reptiles were on display. Lots of tortoises swell. I highly recommend...More
