  • I was horrified to visit this place yesterday as the reptiles and other animals were in filthy cages and the conditions seemed poor. The animals weren't in their natural habitats .  more »
  • Animals are kept in small cages with concrete and tiles, displayed and kept absolutely not humanely. I'm ashamed to have paid money for this.

  • One step short of animal abuse. It's a cramped concrete backyard with miserable animals. This place makes you feel very sad. If you like animals, please don't visit this place. Pros: Engaging, young, energetic guides. Reasonably cheap. Quite a nice butterfly garden. Big, cool snakes. Has a cat that (apparently) is one of those cats that poops expensive coffee beans. Cons: This place is tiny! It's all concrete, metal and tiles. The snakes were suspiciously docile (almost as if they'd been sedated) and had a tiny concrete cage that tourists are allowed to climb in to grab them. A crocodile was wedged into a tiny concrete tub with almost no water left. The guide grabbed butterflies and caterpillars really roughly. There's no love for animals at this place - this is all about tourism. A blatant tourist trap exploiting animals for financial gain.
  • The tourguides are really helpful when it comes to the information of the animals. They could even speak different languages so they can communicate with the other foreign tourists too.
  • We were taken here as part of a tour and thought we were coming to see a butterfly garden. In fact it is a poorly maintained ‘zoo’ which looked neglectful and really sad. It was alarming how poor the conditions were for the animals kept here and felt highly uncomfortable. There were lots of butterflies with broken or missing wings, the guide roughly handled the butterflies and tried to make us hold them. They really aren’t to be touched at all. It was a really sad experience. I didn’t want to see the rest of the place and we left shortly after arriving. Reporting for animal cruelty.
  • We stopped by here as part of a tour. The first part was a butterfly garden where we saw caterpillars and butterflies as well as some on display in glass cabinets. With these butterflies, the guide took photos of us with butterfly wings. After the butterfly garden, we had a photo with a stuffed python which looked old and broken. There was a small zoo in the remaining area with snakes (where you can go into the enclosure), birds, monkeys, and crocodiles.
  • We entered because it was part of our tour. Well, the butterflies were really nice but the animals’ cages were tooo small like everywhere in the Philippines. Poor animals!! But the woman who did the tour for us was extremely friendly and had nice informations for us. But what a pity that animals have to live like that.
