There are zoos which are home to animals from all over the world, and then there are zoos that specialize in one particular species. Welcome to the Kentucky Reptile Zoo!
There are few reptile collections that can compare to the diversity of animals on display at the Kentucky Reptile Zoo. Here, they are home to over 70 species of reptiles, where kids can come face to face with some of their favorite reptiles ever known!
Animals on exhibit range from an 18 foot reticulated python, their largest resident, to many types of venomous snakes such as cobras, vipers and rattlesnakes too!
One of the favorite areas for kids is our Turtle Tracks Area, where both tortoises and aquatic turtles can be seen. You can also walk through exhibits that showcase reptiles from the Tropics, from North America, and make sure you make a stop to see the Alligator pond!
Programs to visit the Kentucky Reptile Zoo are offered daily, and these include the venom extractions and the ever popular reptile talk. These are perfect for kids who will have lots of questions and want to find out more!
The Venom Extraction is usually schedule for 1pm, with the talks scheduled for 3pm and 5pm.
So why not make your next Kentucky family day out one that is surrounded by some of the most amazing creatures on the planet.

Their number one priority is to provide venom for antivenom and for medical and pharmaceutical research! A very close second is conservation of reptile species and public education through on-site tours and off-site programs
Call the morning ahead of your visit if the extractions are still scheduled for that day. If they are cancelled, the reptile talk will be held instead
Just give them a call to chat about the accessibility of the tours!
There are currently no public restrooms available on the grounds
