Come and experience Minnesota’s premier reptile destination. Newly opened in Oct. 2009 we are already one of the worlds largest reptile displays, and an opportunity for a fun family adventure. Marvel at the amazing creatures of the reptile and amphibian world including snakes, turtles, lizards, crocodilians, toads, frogs, and salamanders. Our zoo is home to over 150 kinds of animals from all over the world exhibited in naturalistic recreations of their native environments. Gaze upon “Big Al” the monster 12 foot-long alligator and “Bella” the 14 foot-long python. Catch our daily “Everglades Encounter” show focusing on the animals of the Florida swamp, followed by an opportunity to pet an alligator or a snake. We also have a birthday pavilion and party options available for guests wanting a unique birthday experience. Many of our guests will have an opportunity to feed salad to our tortoises or watch many of our other animals feed. Finish your visit with a stop in our gift shop offering a variety of animal related toys, books, and other gifts.
