  • A must do in the Red! A passionate group who cares about snacks. Watching the venom extraction is very interesting! The staff is amazing!
  • Less of a zoo, and more research facility. If you like reptiles this is a must see if you are nearby. The staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Remember if you visit you are helping fund research.
