There are few reptile collections that can compare to the diversity of animals on display at the Kentucky Reptile Zoo. Animals on exhibit range from an 18 foot reticulated python, our largest resident, to many types of venomous snakes such as cobras, mambas, cottonmouth, copperheads, taipans and rattlesnakes, to an American Alligator. One of the favorite areas for kids is our Turtle Tracks Area, where both tortoises and aquatic turtles can be seen. Live reptile shows at 1, 3 and 5pm.

You are lead through the exhibits by a guide. You go into different shed like structures to view different reptiles, and you get a very informational tour.

They have so many different species of snakes that you'll never get to see anywhere. You get to watch them extract the venom from them. It's a really cool place to stop and visit with your kids.

Was a nice visit. Something cool to do if you're a fan of reptiles. I would have loved to be able to hold some of the non venomous snakes though. You just look at everything through the glass

I was expecting a state of the art facility with a glass enclosed area where you could watch a snake being "milked" for it's venom. What it is was so different. First of all if you need to use the bathroom do so before coming...More
