Dinosaurs roar again at Indian River Reptile Zoo

Exciting to watch these giants roll off the truck that has transported them all the way from Texas. Dozens of dinosaurs and displays will spend the summer near Lakefield as the feature attraction at Indian River Reptile Zoo’s fundraising event that is open to the public daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from June 28 through to September 2.

Over 30 acres of fun and excitement featuring hundreds of live reptiles and 26 dinosaur exhibits, including skull bones, life size animatronic dinosaurs that move and roar, a paleontologist dig, a full T-Rex skeleton and a giant crocodile slide.

Daily live educational shows appeal to all ages and the 2km nature trail that goes up and over the Norwood Esker is a challenge for the energetic family.

All dinosaurs are museum quality with motion and sound; even the eyes move! The T-Rex is over 40 feet long and 20 feet tall.

A visit to the Reptile Zoo is a rare experience and a very innovative concept that entertains with dinosaurs to attract visitors to support the reptile sanctuary.

Reptiles need rescuing, just like cats and dogs. The Reptile Zoo provides a home with specialized care and expert zookeepers.

A new ‘crocodilian’ building is under construction to house existing species and others that may arrive soon as a result of Canada’s changing laws related to erotic species in private collections.

Indian River Reptile Zoo is a not for profit institution and a Revenue Canada registered charity that relies on visitors and sponsors for continuing support.
