Here at the Reptile Zoo we provide a very unique opportunity to get up close and personal with exotic reptiles from across the globe. We have the most extensive collection of reptiles on display that you will find in the Pacific Northwest including turtles, alligators, lizards and many types of snakes including some venomous types such as cobras and rattlesnakes. Some of our most popular animals include a turtle with two heads, an albino alligator, and Aldabra giant tortoises. When you arrive you can expect to be greeted by one of our friendly zoo keepers who will be happy to answer any questions that you might have. Be prepared to have fun and enjoy quality time with these magnificent creatures!

Saturday Feeding: Common Questions and Answers

  • At what times does the Saturday Feeding event start and end?

    • It starts at 5 pm and ends at around 5:50 pm.

  • Which animals are you going to feed? 

    • Each week will be different. There is no set schedule we will be following. We feed a mix of snakes, lizards, turtles and crocodilians. 

  • What can we touch during the Friday Night Feeding?

    • We don’t do snake or alligator touching during our Saturday Feeding, but you will be able to touch our tortoises in our Tortoise Petting Area.

  • Is there a formal tour during the feeding?

    • There is a tour, but it is very informal. We will do our best to answer any questions you may have. 

  • Do you feed your animals live rats and mice?

    • No. All of our animals get fed frozen-thawed rodents and fish. It is of course much easier for us to feed this way, but it is also more humane for the rats, mice and fish and safer for our animals. Most reptiles are ambush predators and do no enjoy the chase or hunt as a lion or wolf in the wild would enjoy. Most reptiles are very good at finding a good place to camp out (along the trail of a potential prey type for example) and sometimes will wait weeks on end before prey gets within range.

  • How do you heat up the rats, mice and fish?

    • We use a food warmer. Microwaves do not work well for this purpose. We have tried in the past and it never works out as intended.

  • Where do you buy your rats and mice from?

    • A company called Rodent Pro based out of Indiana (RodentPro.com).

  • Are you limiting the number of people for the Saturday Feeding? 

    • We are only limiting the number of people to the fire code building capacity which is just under 130 people. We have never reached our fire code for the Saturday Feeding yet. 

  • Are we going to be able to see each animal eat?

    • You will have to pick and choose what you want to watch eat. We will do our best to spread out the feedings so that even if we do have a large crowd each person will have a good view of at least some animals eating. This means that you will have to prioritize which animals you want to see eat. Thank you for reading!
