    My husband and I wanted to take our 3 year old son to somewhere he could see reptiles. Hes really into dinosaurs right now but we wanted to take him somewhere close to home that wouldn't cost to much to go where he could walk around and enjoy a variety. We found this place. And we were amazed by the variety of reptiles and amphibians. Our son even got to touch and pet a smaller alligator and he loved it. Great place for the whole family to go and spend time togehter. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff about the different creatures they take care of or have rescued. Definitely will visit again. Plus its indoors so you can go anytime of the year.

    Very awesome and diverse collection. Definitely worth the admission. We were able to hold a python and my husband got the rare experience of holding an alligator. The lady there was very knowledgeable about the reptiles! If I'm ever up here again I will go back!
