  • I didn't like this place, it is tiny and there are only a few things to see. A couple of captive seastars and turtles, and the sloth that is living there. Is that worth 8 dollars? 
  • What more interesting lis types of frogs that have. We did not see any lazy. The staff very friendly. They have a small Aquarium and a few turtles.
