  • Carl and staff were so informative. Watching Carl extract the venom from 4 different snakes was amazing. You can tell education is too of their list. I came all the way from Pennsylvania to see this amazing place. I was not disappointed at all. It exceeded my expectations above and beyond. If your a reptile enthusiast this is a great place to visit. Carl came out in the end of his presentation and answered questions and even posed with people whom wanted photos. An amazing adventure.
  • Awesome exhibit and the staff was amazing! The live venom extraction was an exceptional experience, demonstrating the first step of creating an anti-venom. Would definitely go back.
