Welcome to Little Ray's Reptile Zoo and Nature Centre! Since 1995, we have been offering one of Canada's most fun and interactive approaches to eco education and zoology. The reptile zoo has the largest and most diverse animal education outreach program in Canada and has trained zookeepers and zoo facilities on site and off site since its inception. Our facility is one of a kind in the Ottawa area, and offers a series of dynamic school and daycare programs, children's birthday parties, and hosting and bookings for corporate events and fair exhibition tours across Canada for more than 15 years.
