Like others, I had some time to waste, and they were open for a bit. Price seemed reasonable so I poked my head in. There were a lot of animals, with good info provided. However, I felt the enclosures were dated, the building had a horrible odour, and I generally left a little 'creeped' out...

From outside and ticket counter it looks like nothing great but man I was blow away. Cool stuff. Every kind of snake, poison frogs, alligator, turtles, a huge and condo and Python. We loved it. That place should splurge on a new colourful paint job and it would be much nicer looking.

This one is tough to review, because it's hard to see animals confined to captivity, but on the other hand, it's amazing to be able to appreciate things close up that you would likely never normally encounter. We felt bad looking at the crocodiles, caymans and other large animals in small, rather sparse looking cages.....in a building that looks like... More

Stopped here because had an hour or so spare in Drumheller and were very glad that we did. Very interesting collection (especially of the monitor lizards, and generally well laid out. Staff helpful and enthusiastic. Only slight complaint - the publicity material seemed rather out of date.

Mixed review for this place - on the one hand, they have a great variety of reptiles and amphibians on display, and it's a great place to take the kids if you want to see some snakes & crocodiles up close. But on the other hand, the displays themselves are small (maybe too small for some of the animals?), appear... More

I had read the mixed reviews of this attraction but was curious enough so we checked it out yesterday It was very informative and interesting but as an adult I saw many things lacking in the facility itself. The variety of species is quite impressive which would require specialists or those familiar with the the requirements of the species itself.... More

We loved reptile world - such a great variety of reptiles. Well set out and easy to view. The owner obviously looks after the reptiles and really cares about them. He brings a boa constrictor out for you to hold and lets you take a photo with your own camera. Great t shirts for sale.

I just can't help but feel bad for some of the reptiles. For example, the giant alligator (or crocodile, excuse my lack of reptile knowledge) sitting in a barren and lifeless pool just makes me feel so bad for that creature.. Instead of being entertained or anything. Also, when we were there, it just so happened to be that there... More
