The mission of the Great Lakes Zoological Society is to enhance public awareness of the need for wildlife conservation and education within a balanced ecosystem while connecting people to nature through the conservation and rescue of injured, neglected or unwanted reptiles and amphibians.

The Great Lakes Zoological Society’s World of Discovery Reptile Zoo is a family destination featuring Reptiles, Amphibians, Birds, Insects, and Arachnids, and also functions as a reptile rescue and adoption center. The 5000 square foot indoor exhibit houses over 100 animals representing over 70 exotic and Michigan indigenous species. We have a spacious gift shop and a classroom where school children, scouts, and birthday goers enjoy a hands-on interpretive education program. We educate kids, promote conservation, and help animals. We are located on the west side of Ann Arbor and are open seven days a week from 10 to 6.

A very nice, clean, and fun place. Animals were very cool, unusual and exotic! It was very fun to see the gigantic tortoises eating salad. There is everything from creepy spiders to giant lizards. It took me about a half hour to walk through the whole place. For $7 a person, it was well worth it. Overall, a very fun place.
