Located just north of Toronto in the city of Vaughan, Reptilia is an indoor reptile and amphibian zoo, which also houses a retail store. If you want to spend a day viewing or learning about these fascinating creatures, or are serious about providing a home for a reptile or amphibian as a pet, Reptilia has displays, animals and knowledgeable staff at your service.
Special Events and Programming:
Reptilia has several birthday party packages available or can be hired to bring a variety of animals to your home.
Summer and winter day camps for children aged 4-12 run Monday to Friday for several weeks throughout the year. The camps include not only an educational experience with the reptiles and amphibians, but also more traditional day camp activities such as crafts and sports.
Other special events may be scheduled by groups, such as guided tours or the special flashlight tours that keep the lights low so nocturnal zoo residents will come to life. Consult the website for details.
The Reptilia Retail Store:
The store serves as both a gift shop and a supply store for hobbyists. In the gift shop category, there’s everything from stuffed animals, magnets and t-shirts to home decor for inside and out.
For hobbyists, there are the terrariums, lights, and other equipment to get you set-up, plenty of books to help you educate yourself, a variety of food (including the supplies to raise your own crickets), and of course the animals themselves.
If you love reptiles and amphibians – or are trying to buy a gift for someone who does – the Reptilia store is a great place to browse, and very likely buy.
With a focus on education, staff and animals from Reptilia can be booked to travel to schools or other organizations to give presentations. They also work with film and television production crews when animals are needed on set.
