  • Super great place for kids; it's educational and all the exhibits were suitable for the animals. However, it's pretty warm inside (I assume to keep the animals at their appropriate temperatures) and it doesn't take very long to get through the whole building. It's reasonably priced though so its definitely a fun place to visit if you're in the area.
  • I came here today and this place is awesome!! The snakes are the coolest collection I've ever seen. There are so many creatures and they were all out and observable. It was a lot of fun and I would highly recommend it. Veterans get a discount which is great! The staff were friendly, contrary to a post I read earlier. We made it through in about an hour but could of been longer and read through more of the signs.
  • They had a variety of different animals . They do love feedings which is awesome to watch. The animals seem happy and the cages seem to be a good size for most of the animals. My son had a blast visiting and we plan to go back!!!
  • Second time being here. Incredible collection of snakes, both poisonous and non-venomous!! They also have crocodiles and monitor lizards and a big turtle. All the creatures are very active. Very pleasant staff now! (New owners) Reasonably priced. Near the waterfront. Very educational. They are doing updates. Would absolutely go again! Worth the visit!
  • Awesome owner he has a ton of experience with snakes and is willing to teach you anything you would like to know about them. They also have a huge variety of snakes and reptiles you would never believe from all around the world. They are military friendly, definitely will be coming back there!
