  • Family owned and operated. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. My family have been enjoying coming here for over a decade.
  • Fantastic place. Snakes, turtles, crocs, good shows, educational. Hold a snake, see the croc feeding.
  • This was one of the highlights of my trip. Don't miss if you're in the area. The inside is bigger than it looks from the outside. Many different snakes. The snake handler has a show. She was funny and very knowledgeable. We also got to hold a non venemous snake and take pictures. Outside we're the alligators. Lots of them. There is feeding time to watch. Plan to stay about 2 hours if you're going to watch the shows. Nice gift shop.
  • I have visited a lot of reptile zoos, but this one it's worth every penny. They have a lot of cute turtles to feed for only 2 quarters. They have several shows you will see each day. 2 Alligator feedings which are joined by some very adaptable vultures that have learned to take advantage of the situation. The alligators are well fed. Adorably plump. The the information and stories are good and funny. They have several snake shows during which a good education that is also entertaining. They also are 1 of the six facilities in the US that provide snake venom to be used to save lives. You get to watch that cool show too. Nice gift shop also. And the entire thing is in the semi shade do you don't have the usual misery of sun baking like at a lot of zoos. We go every year. I learn something new every time. I think is is a good value. They have events too and good good concession stands. The walk is so much better than zoos I've been to because they have lots of shade. If you want to leave and come back that day they will stamp your hand as you leave. Be sure to ask at the cashier counter in the gift shop.
  • Went with three grands and a dear friend. The snake program was excellent and very informative. The alligator feeding was exciting and also Informative. We loved it.
