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.

Living in Vaughan for 8 years now, we would pass by this place every day. We have no kids, but had an opportunity to bring our nephew here. He loved it. At 2 yrs old, he understood where he was, and enjoyed himself.

The staff is fun and knowledgeable, very approachable. Low windows makes the exhibits easy to see for toddlers. Live show was a lot of fun.

Everything about this place was Family First i.e the price, the food, the merchandise. We liked it so much... More

Went into this one with eyes closed, but soon found out this was a real cool adventure. The place was packed with reptiles and a very friendly staff to answer all your questions. It was a great afternoon. Loved the feedings.

We stopped here to break up or vacation. It was a great experience for the children. They loved looking at the animals overlooked at many other zoos. Children were 9 5 and 4.

Lots of great reptiles. Kids loved walking through and got to touch a few of the reptiles. Good on a cold day if you want to pass some time. It's a bit short but we went around twice.

My boys loved going and seeing the reptiles. It is a good way to spend a rainy or sunny day. The kids loved seeing a snake being fed
