world of reptiles and friends


NOW OPEN, the World of Reptiles and Friends is the slithering, creeping, crawling and curious adventure you’ve been waiting for. Come face to face with reptile giants, watch hatching and newborn reptiles being nurtured and raised and immerse yourself in a floor to ceiling marsh habitat of the Siamese crocodile.

This state-of-the-art overhaul of the Virginia Zoo’s reptile building is full of “Defining Moment” opportunities for children and adults alike.

We invite you to support, follow and share this project that is sure to delight visitors and inhabitants, and provide the next frontier of learning and stewardship for this spectacular collection of animals.
