This attraction had several gators. lizards, fish and other creatures to see and learn about. They allowed us to hold and even smooch one of the gators. We were able to pet "rudolph" the giant turtle that was more like a pet than an exhibit....More

Small but interesting place to learn about alligator. Reasonable entrance price at $7 per adult, $6 for children. You get to see and learn about alligators, their feeding habits, their likes/dislikes, and even get to touch and hold one at an additional cost. We paid...More

Pretty neat little place. My kid liked it, my wife seemed to enjoy it. It was a little pricey for no more than it was.

Even though we arrived when they were closing, they still let us in. When we told them we wanted to see their tortoises, they got them out of the pens so we could pet them and take pictures. Other families asked if they could come...More
