“I’m originally from Florida, and I am amazed to have seen an alligator without a banded jaw! The opportunity to touch and interact with (the reptiles) and learn from the show was an incredible experience made more wonderful by the reasonable prices for everything!”
– Cathey Fitzgerald, Lancaster, Pa.

Since its opening in 2011, the Reptiles and Exotics Facility  has become a real crowd-pleaser. The large, custom-designed habitats give you a glimpse into the dwellings of these rare and exotic creatures while educational presentations and opportunities to touch a live alligator or a snake enlighten you.

You may enjoy simply walking through or taking a seat for one of several shows given throughout the day.

The facility opens at 11:30 a.m. each day with the exception of weekdays in May when it opens to the public at 2 p.m. There are four show times scheduled for the weekdays and five on the weekends. The show schedule is as follows: Mon. – Fri. – 12:30, 1:30, 2:30 and 4:00p.m.; and Sat. – Sun. – 12:30, 1:30, 2:30, 3:30 and 5:00 p.m.

Animals on display may vary daily, but will usually include snakes, lizards, amphibians, large tortoises, marmosets, tamarins, tropical birds, a sloth, lemurs and a few surprises.
