Clyde Peeling's Reptiland

Field review by the editors.

Allenwood, Pennsylvania

Reptiland stresses its dedication to the "less-loved" members of the animal kingdom. Alligators wallow in pens, poisonous snakes hiss from behind fang-proof glass, a pond boils with koi when visitors throw in fish food. The attraction has for decades been an innovator in exhibit design, so it's not the bug-infested swamphole you might expect. We were dazzled years ago by its "Feed Us A Live Insect" Machine, which for fifty cents dropped a hapless cricket into the lair of a hungry snapping turtle.
