Reptilandia

Skip to Content

Reptilandia is a wonderful place to learn about some of the unique fauna native to Costa Rica. Many types of snakes, lizards, crocodiles, frogs, and other cold-blooded creatures call this garden their home, and visitors might even get to see a Boa Constrictor eat its prey!

Interesting Facts:

  • Costa Rica is home to 133 species of frogs and toads, which are placed into eight families. Although the colorful Red-eyed Tree Frog is the most famously photographed, most of the species are neutral colors so that they blend in with their surroundings.
  • Don’t be alarmed about poisonous snakes! There are 135 species of snakes in Costa Rica, but only 17 are venomous.
