Reptilia’s Amazing Reptile Zoo!
Let’s talk about Reptilia Zoo: Reptilia is a state of the art 25,000 square foot CAZA-accredited facility complete with large exhibits showcasing hundreds of different reptiles and amphibians. Watch our Cast at work in the lab, 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!
Visit our star attractions page to get a glimpse at just a small number of the cool creatures you will meet when you visit us!
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.

Enjoy the feeding at Reptilia – Part of the excitement of visiting Reptilia is to witness a reptile eating its meal!
As you probably know, many reptiles eat other animals including rodents, insects, birds, snakes, eggs and, for some lizards such as the monitors, almost anything digestible!
All prey items fed at Reptilia have been humanely euthanized as has been our policy since opening in 1996.

Special Zoo Tours
Looking for something a bit more personal? Reptilia’s private zoo tours are for you. Our zoo tours add adventure to your Reptilia experience with the chance to meet and interact with some of our reptilian residents and get a glimpse of what life is like behind the scenes, all guided by a knowledgeable cast member there just for you! After the tour, you are welcome to stick around for our other public shows or feedings as well as to enjoy the zoo itself.
14 feet and over 1000 pounds – you’re going to be glad that there is glass in between you and him! Induna is a Nile crocodile, one of the biggest species of crocodile in the world! These guys hunt and eat more human beings than any other living animal, but don’t worry! Induna hasn’t eaten any visitors yet! Instead he munches on beef steaks and whole chickens!
The king cobra is the biggest venomous snake species in the world, growing to lengths longer than most species of python! At 14 feet long, this King is the largest venomous snake at any zoo in Canada. The king cobra gets his title because of his preferred diet in the wild, other snakes! Luckily our King isn’t as picky as some of the members of his species; he dines on a rat every Saturday morning!
Lou the American alligator is 9 feet long and 300 pounds, pretty big for his 20’s! He looks pretty scary and intimidating, but he’s a teddy bear in comparison to our other crocodilians! All crocodilians like the water, but Lou seems to take this to the extreme! If you want him to come over for a visit, you don’t call his name. Instead, send a jet of water anywhere into the exhibit and he’ll rush over to chomp and roll playfully in the spray!
Diega is 19 feet of reticulated python, the largest of her kind in all of Canada! She’s a powerful constrictor that subdues her prey by suffocation! You might wonder what such a massive carnivore eats. It’s a rare event, occurring only three or four times a year, but it’s something you don’t want to miss out on! Her meal will weigh anywhere from 40 – 75 pounds, and she swallows the entire thing in one single gulp that may take several hours. Her meal of choice? Goats!
Reptilia’s new playground is officially open! Tunnels, slides, glowing bugs and cool caves galore! Come play year round. It’s nice and warm indoors during the winter with just the price of admission to the zoo! For the best value, grab a Reptilia membership and come in as many times as you would like for the entire year!
