    We went here for a 3rd grade field trip. This is a great place to visit if your kids love to learn, explore and like/love reptiles. Friendly staff, nice outdoor trails and lots of great animals to see...  more »

    My wife and I were kind of expecting a run of the mill exhibit. Just walk in, look at reptiles and leave. We were totally wrong. They have so many different types of snakes from all over the world. They're in glass display cases and the snakes don't have placed to hide so you'll definitely get a good view. The venom milking is the best part though. It's intense to watch these professionals handle dangerous and quick animals. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and answered all questions that everyone had. We look forward to going back in the future.

    This place is amazing and the staff is top notch! We held my daughter's birthday party in the pavilion, and the kids were treated to a nature walk, watched alligator feeding, and were allowed to touch and experience numerous reptiles. They spent time answering the kids questions and made it a great interactive experience - watching the Venom Extraction was a special treat that none of the kids will forget! Truly exciting! Thank you Carl and staff!
