Kentucky Reptile Zoo Reviews & Ratings
They had a lot to offer for how small of a place it truly was. They gave you pretty in depth information and actually told you what you were seeing instead of "oh, it's a snake. How nice ". The animals were very well taken care of and they cleaned the cages regularly. It was also extremely clean and an attractive display.
This is one of the most extensive reptile collections I have ever seen in one place. The work that they do with venous snakes alone is truly amazing and benefits so many people all over the world. Our tour guide was a college intern that is studying the physiological adaptation and evolution of various venomous species. The facility really is a multifaceted and greatly beneficial place to take the whole family to learn about creatures that are mostly misunderstood. My wife and I will be donating and visit often.
Amazing selection of reptiles and very knowledgeable tour guides. The only thing keeping me from giving a five star rating is the conditions of a few of the snakes. The Burmese python was dehydrated, and a few other snakes, including the reticulated python, were noticeably overweight. Nothing major and my visit was overall a nice experience.
Great place to visit while in the Red River Gorge. Each group is given a tour guide which is usually a student that is very knowledgeable. Our family has been twice and the number of snakes is unbelievable.
Knowledgeable staff and it was fun looking at the animals. It was more of a hobby farm than a zoo. It's mostly snakes and a few turtles, an alligator, and a couple lizards. The live venom extraction was interesting to see but it would have been fun to be able to handle a non-vemonous snake.
