Was a fun road trip stop. Great variety of reptiles and great info on each species. Kids really enjoyed! Had to remove one star because restrooms were awful/not functioning.

So I went once with my friend and my son, and then my friend went with his son. Both trips were fun, everyone gets to hold a snake at the end. It's a little smelly but you get used to it with all the cool...More

Took our grandkids and we all enjoyed it a lot. For me, learning about all the creatures there was most interesting. The charts on each cage are done very well--not too wordy or detailed, just right for a quick read. The place is a little...More

This place is really amazing. Great for families. They'll have hands on activities with the animals. Two headed turtle. Poisonous snakes. Something for everyone. You're very likely to enjoy this and it's off the beaten path.

Unusual reptiles and LOTS of them! Basker, the albino alligator is a gorgeous creature, and they really do have a LIVE 2-headed turtle! Wonderful and EXTENSIVE collection of snakes, lizards, etc. The place looks dusty, but they probably want spiders to visit (free food for...More
