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.

We went to reptilia with a group of people in mid February. It's located in a non descript suburban commercial complex north of Toronto, but within its building one enters a display of reptiles and amphibians of all kinds. People can watch and learn about these creatures, and keepers are on hand to take the more harmless ones out of... More

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.

On a winter weekend I had to take to take the kids to a warm and exotic place. Reptilia Zoo had it.

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.

I had no idea Reptilla was so big. I've has past the building a bunch of times but never expected it to be so great. Our kids loved the centre and at the end of the tour we purchased a snake. 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.
