Recently, we took our niece and nephew to the Great Lakes Zoological Society’s World of Discovery Reptile Zoo. The Great Lakes Zoological Society’s World of Discovery Reptile Zoo is a family destination featuring reptiles, amphibians, birds, insects, and arachnids, and also functions as a reptile rescue and adoption center. The 5000 square foot indoor exhibit houses over 100 animals representing over 70 exotic and Michigan indigenous species.
We spent a little over an hour exploring the exhibits and had a great time, and I think the kids did too. Some of the kids favorites were the poison dart frogs, giant tortoises, and the Bearded Dragon (which my niece really wanted to let out of its cage so she could hug it). Dave and I really enjoyed seeing the giant Black Throat Monitor climb up a branch and the massive Reticulated Python, which was probably the biggest snake we’ve ever seen. We also got to see them feed one of the Dwarf Caiman which was pretty cool.
The Great Lakes Zoological Society’s World of Discovery Reptile Zoo is a great local resource and I highly encourage checking it out.
