  • The five year old thought it was awesome. After being at Seaworld I think he may have been a little underwhelmed though. He was dying to touch the stingrays as they allow at SeaWorld, however, he unde...  more »

  • The staff make this place great. We had two guys that were very fun and helpful. Ask them anything about Florida reptiles and get ready to learn something new. Not a very big place but a nice cool break from John's pass.
  • Simple. They love and care for the gators. You may feel it's a bit expensive to feed a hatchling, but its HEAD EXPLODING INTOLARABLY CUTE!! and the money to fed and hold them goes to their care. If i had the time and money id go often just for the "donation factor" of it. For $10 you can hold one and get a picture of you & the gator. Its all in one room with a separate area for a small aquarium. All & all the small fee to enter both attractions is well worth it. I have nothing to do with this attraction but I still feel compelled to make a little pitch. Bring your kids, pay the extra cash to feed the hatchlings chicken on a string its incredibly cute to see the little guys waiting mouth agape ready to grab the chicken. And some money getting a picture with a docile secured gator. I try to spend about $20 when i occasionally visit there. THE MONEY GOES TO THE CARE AND FEEDING OF THE ANIMALS.
  • Great place, small area, but it was fun :) staff -Tony super friendly and nice and knowledge! Good info
  • Small place for kids, staff is super friendly and knowledge :) got to hold alligator and take pictures privately, very cheap total, kids loved it, simply cute, but very small territory, but it's cheap ;)
  • Cool display of turtles and gators but living space for animals is extremely small. I felt bad for the animals... Walking through the 10 minute attraction was definitely not worth the $10
