  • We are visiting my in laws in a small town nearby and were looking for a fun activity for our 4 year old. This place is perfect. It's not super fancy, inside the Mesa Mall (no outside sign), about the size of two mall stores put together. It's filled with mostly rescue snakes, turtles, tortoises, other reptiles, and a few birds and fish. After you pay, you wash your hands and a person walks your small group from animal to animal, teaching you about the animal, and letting you touch many of them. We were in and out in less than 2 hours. It was a nice, air conditioned kid outting. There is a small play space that seemed good for infants and toddlers and also a small gift shop of sorts near the register.
  • We are visiting from out of town and had a fabulous visit today. My children and I both were excited to get a guided tour through all the creatures, and even getting to touch so many of them. What a special project they have going on there! The staff were so knowledgeable. And there is even a kids play area. I just wish we lived closer so we could go again and again!
