The Indian River Reptile Zoo 

Croc-Walk:

  • ​​Walk along a bridge hovering over six ponds that are home to caiman, crocodiles, and alligator!


Nature Walk and Hiking Trail: 

  • Located on 44 acres of unique landscape, the zoo features a trail that cuts through picturesque scenery where visitors can view native wildlife, ponds, and the famous Norwood Esker gravel ridge.


Boneyard: 

Families can feel the thrill of being a paleontologist by digging for real dinosaur bones in the zoo's boneyard.

Dinosaur Exhibit: 

This exhibit showcases a collection of dinosaur skulls and two large full skeletons that show guests just how gargantuan these creatures were, and life-size animatronic dinosaurs move and roar for an immersive experience.

Live Animal Demonstrations:

During these daily educational programs, specialized zookeepers dispel myths about reptiles and let participants view them up close.
