I love gators so we had to stop, we both enjoyed it. It was really cool to get to hold the little gator and I wish we would've had more time to stay and watch them eat! It was fun to feed the deer, goats, and donkeys! Very cool place!

Enjoyed feeding the goats and deer in the pens. Then go inside a building to see lemurs and baby gators. You be asked if you want to pet one. A Merman is on exhibit- looks freaky. A old alligator is hung in memory over the pen with something in its mouth. Outside see full grown gators on vacation. A fox , mountain lion; peacock, a grandpa old
Gobbler makes his air sounds. Ducks are busy running around while 2 gators mediate on a tree stump. Finally you will pass the turtle pond overlooked by a
Concrete alligator spewing water continiously. Now you are in the gift shop
Hearing hello 50 times from a pet bird
In the shop. Look low for cheap gifts.
Fun is here. It's neat!

We visited on a cool spring day so the owners thought the alligators might not be willing to eat. Feeding time was at noon so we didn't stick around to find out. We got to hold a baby alligator and feed donkeys, an emu, goats, sheep and fallow deer. They also have wolves, turkeys and a few more animals on site. The lady working the desk is great. The entry price is a little high, but I know it must be expensive to feed all those animals. Overall, a good way to spend an hour or so.
