Our Mission and Animal Ambassadors

Our mission is to bring education to the public through interaction! Through generous donations and amazing animal
ambassadors, we can bring the hands-on to YOU.

Our facility is home to hundreds of rescues, adoptable animals and even some avian counterparts alike!  We work closely with the Department of Agriculture and Idaho Fish and Game to make sure that no animal in need gets looked past.  This allows us to be a permanent home to invasive as well as illegal species here in Idaho, and educate the public on these animals as well.  Our mascot, Beast the Blue tegu, our team of Burmese pythons, and Harriet, our Salmon Pink Birdeater tarantula, are all just a small part of our animal team of educators to bring everyone the knowledge on these amazing creatures, as well as the hands on approach to conquering your fears of these truly stunning animals. Who's ready to meet the entire ambassador crew?!

Our Future

Idaho Reptile Zoo is growing fast!  We cannot thank the community enough for over 10 years of support. 

Our mission is to open and maintain Idaho's first Reptile Zoo and Education Center.  Our future involves large indoor and outdoor enclosures where the general public can interact with reptiles, arachnids, birds and amphibians alike.  In addition to visiting our adoption center, our store and partners will be the go-to spot for supplies and food for exotic pets!  Our non-profit is run on grants and donations, and we want YOU to be a part of our journey!
