 What is Crocodile Encounter?  Crocodile Encounter is a fully licensed and insured USDA zoological facility whose primary focus is science and wildlife education. A visit to Houston's only reptile zoo enables each visitor to experience wildlife in a safe, exciting, and educational fashion. You will see crocodiles and alligators swimming and sunning before your knowledgeable and lively guides bring the animals directly to you for a feeding demonstration. Crocodile Encounter has the largest group of crocodiles on display in the state of Texas. We are the premier crocodilian facility in the state and widely regarded in the zoological world as a standard bearer in the care of captive crocodilians. The animal ambassadors that live at our location are some of the most storied, legendary, and unfortunately endangered animals on the planet.  It is our mission to further educate the public on these vital keystone species and the impact they have on the human world.  In addition to crocodiles many other animal species call Crocodile Encounter home. Our facility is  home to numerous species of snakes, lizards, and turtles and a representative faction of mammals.  


Crocodile Encounter is the most diverse live reptile show in the state of Texas and we give you the option of having an event at your location or bringing your group to see the big crocs at Crocodile Encounter. We do hundreds of events across Texas each year. These events can be as small as a child's birthday party or as large as a museum event.  Crocodiles and alligators make each one unique and entertaining. Crocodile Encounter grows larger each and every year. Our zoo expands with new species and even more crocodilians. Safe effective educational entertainment from a professional group. We make nature real and important in the lives of our patrons. Enjoy our top flight stage show or visit our incredible crocodilian zoological facility.
