Riverside Wildlife and Reptile Center

Hold baby alligators and snakes. Meet tigers and tiger trainers. Fun quirky gifts, great people!

Once known as the Riverside Reptile Ranch, founded by herpetologist Bill Fitzgerald, has expanded to include other animals such as lemurs and tigers. Some animals were bought and some are rescued.
