  • Great place to visit! Our 4 year old daughter had a blast! Loved feeding the giant tortoises and the birds. Definitely one of the best animal places we have been too.

  • It's a great local treasure to have an educational and fun activity for the kids. I grew up near the National Zoo in Washington, DC and it would not at all be fair to compare this to their reptile house. When taken in the context of a small town reptile zoo it's very well done. All staff I have ever interacted with are very knowledgeable. They are great at interacting with kids both in their shows and when on the floor near the animals. We enjoy going back enough to buy annual memberships.
  • A really fun place for family and kids. The reptile collection is one of a kind some of the most amazing species you'll ever see. The bird aviary is quite amazing the words will come up and land on your shoulders or your fingers so friendly It's amazing. Highly recommend taking family and friends there.
