The newest addition to the South of the Border Tourist Attraction is our Reptile Lagoon, run by Pedro’s cousin Zurdo. It’s the largest indoor reptile exhibit in the U.S. and it’s right here in Dillon, South Carolina. It has an amazing collection of snakes, alligators, crocodiles, turtles and other creepy crawlies.
On your next trip to South of the Border, make sure you allow ample time to spend in our fun and informative Reptile Lagoon. We have an experienced veteran snake and reptile handler, along with friendly staff who are here to educate the kids while they marvel at the huge variety of exhibits. What would a trip to South of the Border be without shopping? Boring is what it would be, so of course the Reptile Lagoon has a gift shop full of reptile themed items to remember the experience.
Our Reptile Lagoon has a wide variety of crocodile species. We have over 15 varieties that are on display. These include American alligators, Nile crocodiles, a slender-snouted crocodile, and many other types. We also have crocs that are on the endangered species list and a portion of every admission goes to the Crocodile Conservation Institute to help save these prehistoric animals. The custom built pools and walkways allow close up viewing, while always maintaining strict safety.
