Indian River Reptile Zoo

There is already a photo of the Indian River Reptile Zoo on Roadside America showing the Stonehenge rocks. However, the zoo is much more than that. It has both a large, serious reptile collection and a collection of animatronic dinosaurs. An interesting, if somewhat pricy, place to visit.

Indian River Reptile Zoo

We were driving on Hwy 7 and suddenly we saw the biggest inflated crocodile we've ever seen. In the middle of nowhere. We had seen signs for this place on the side of the road and we were thinking "snakes and lizards," but we were wrong. It was more about dinosaurs and others. It seems to be a real archeological site. But we had fun taking pictures of the crocodile and their false monolith reproduction. It's worth a detour if you're close to it!
