  • Went as a class trip. Was over all a good trip. They have friendly staff but i Was a bit disappointed with the lack of reptiles that were there but they are rescues so who can complain. Really good to see a zoo set up for unwanted animals. I would encourage that they make zoo larger so not to see everything in 30 min. I would have also like to see reptiles more active...when would feeding day be as it would be worth the trip back up to see for the children? Keep up the great work :)
  • Wasn't sure what to expect but it was a gem in the middle of nowhere. Some have been turned off at the high admission prices but after spending approximately 2 plus hours there, I can see why. They are a RESCUE. They make and provide essential anti venom for poisonous snake bites. They are well staffed, not to mention very knowledgeable and super friendly. The facilities are clean and the gator outside enclosure was very well designed and upkept. Several educational centers. Even had a gator slide plus dinosaur exhibit. Only thing I would have liked is maybe a small cafeteria or eatery. Anyway, the gift shop had some really cool stuff for the kid's and myself. I learned a lot and had a great time taking pictures etc. Going to visit again.
  • cool place however a little small for the price. the croc walk is great though
  • Its good. Great educational value for kids and adults. Great collection.
  • Really enjoyed. Immaculate facility. Great set of animals and super friendly staff.
