The Reptile Zoo is home to more than 100 exotic species of reptiles, amphibians, and arachnids. Some were rescued and brought here, some were born here, and others hitchhiked here after reading about the zoo's excellent conditions. The zoo invites you to explore and learn about all its many creatures, whether through interactive displays or live presentations. Some hands-on opportunities at the zoo may include wearing an eight-foot Burmese python
around your arm or
feeding hungry beasts in the hands-on feeding zone. During a visit, you might also meet a celebrity in Frank, a 65-pound lizard better known as Mr. Kipling on The Disney Channel's Jessie.

While the rest of the natural world prepares to hibernate for the winter, Enchanted Country Trees & Pumpkins has been at its most active since 1983. Farmers pick the plumpest pumpkins from their patches, displaying them next to bounce houses and trundling John Deere tractors. Barnyard animals deign to be petted in exchange for palmfuls of feed, and ponies accept small riders for afternoon trots. Come winter, the lots fill with Christmas trees.
Karen and Christy, the two sisters behind Frosty's Forest and Pumpkin Patch, have added a touch of Christmas spirit to a whole lot of living rooms. Since 1980, their family has been in the Christmas-tree game, growing statuesque pines and firs on their Oregon farm. They practice sustainable farming, which keeps the earth chemical-free and the trees lush enough to support sparkling ornaments or repurposed disco balls. Frosty's offers these trees during the holiday season, but the fun actually starts much earlier; in the autumn, Frosty's outlets also stock pumpkins suitable for carving into the spookiest of jack-o'-lanterns. The sisters pair these seasonal errands with plenty of fun activities; their locations include pony rides, petting zoos, and rides, as well as special fall attractions, like the corn maze at the Chino location and the water bobble rides at Chino and Yorba Linda.
