Our ambassadors travel valley wide and visit schools, churches, retirement communities, resorts and much more. This exciting new display of animal exhibits features giant ectotherms – reptiles that use their environments to control their body temperatures.  Dragon World features large acrylic panels including some with underwater viewing to provide visitors with an up-close look at these amazing animals.Dragon World is home to "Jaws" - the only saltwater crocodile in Arizona.  Saltwater crocodiles from Australia and Southeast Asia are the largest and one of the most fearsome varieties of crocodilian in the world.  At 10 feet long, Jaws has the potential to double his size since “Salties” can weigh over 1 ton and grow to over 22 feet long.

Very large zoo so a lot of walking is involved. There are a lot of good animals and they really looked like they are well-cared. The aquarium area is a good place to hangout for a hot day. The guides were very enthusiastic and the staff is very friendly and nice. The park is also huge so no problem with the parking space. This zoo is a wonderful place to spend the day.

Fantastic zoo! We are now members there because we just love this zoo! Lots of walking and they are still building on there and making more improvements. It takes you about 3-4hrs to walk through the zoo. The path throughout the zoo is dirt roads.

Great spot! Money well spent. Check Groupon for a deal! If you’re a non masker, this place is for you! If you’re a masker, wear two or three masks. Plenty of room to social distance. Hand sanitizer available if you are into using some that’s not your own. Really great spot, TONS to see and do. You can’t go wrong with this fun stop. Don’t miss it!
