  • We went out hoping to do a little hike. There are no trails. This place is like a mini zoo with animals and reptiles in cages. Great for small children but not much else. Takes less than an hour to se...  more »
  • We visited on a day when the admission was free, so there were lots of families. Volunteers were taking some of the critters out of their cages so that we could pet them. It was fun, and the staff was...  more »

  • I have lived in San Angelo since 1988 and this was my first time going. For a small city I thought it was a great adventure with kids. I enjoyed it as much as the kids. Had a lot of interesting critters and different bugs. It’s a small fee for adults but well worth it to come out and see.
  • Very cool place for a small town. The staff and volunteers are knowledgeable. You can touch the animals as they take them out. My favorites were the armadillo and the prarie dog. The skunk is pretty cool too, has a hammock he just hangs out in! There are the large snakes, one weighs 300 pounds, wow! There is a wall that has venomous and non-venomous snakes which was nice to compare them and there was a rattle snake, rattling! Outside there are Bob cats, a raccoon, a fox, a gigantic turtle and my personal favorite - porcupine! Only costs $2, go check it out!
  • Volunteer Phillip Bordner is the coolest kid and very knowledgeable. I love the arts, definitely the hot dogs! The new rec coordinator is the bomb dot com. One of the caretakers looks like she's 7, how old do they hire?? That's my only complaint. 4 stars.
  • For a small center there were a lot of animals to see. There was an ASU Agg student on site that told us all about the animals, and the kids were able to pet several. Well worth a could dollars and an hour of our time.
  • Fun place to take the kids! Birthday parties are awesome and affordable, and camps are fun. One suggestion - please extend your open hours to include mornings!
