Violence & Scariness
Reptiles hiss, scratch, squeeze, or can potentially bite. Some episodes feature things like professional wrestling, and excerpts of matches are shown. No one gets hurt in any of these situations.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Reptile Royalty is an unscripted series about people working at a reptile zoo and the animals they take care of. There's nothing to be worried about here, but some kids may be sensitive about the scarier looking animals. On occasion scenes of wrestling matches and other events are featured that contain some fighting moves (but no one gets hurt). It's a promotional vehicle for The Reptile Zoo and its various services.
Is It Any Good?
The contrived series features a charismatic zoo keeper and his family running their reptile-centered family business. Each episode focuses on specific animals, and shares some interesting details about them. Many also depict events that feature an animal under the zoo team's supervision. But some folks may be uncomfortable with the zoo itself, which is located in a strip mall, and which seems too small to be housing so many animals in one place. Others may not appreciate animals being "rented out" for parties and events. And, of course, it's a promotional vehicle for the zoo, which also has a very active social media presence. If you look past these details, Reptile Royalty is produced to be a fun, family-friendly series.
