  • Phenomenal experience!! You will never get this close to exotic animals. They are well cared for and clearly loved by their caregivers. All of the animals were surrendered or rescued/absolutely no breeding. The animals are beautiful. You learn a lot. My sister and I were visiting St Augustine and are so glad we came here.
  • What a wonderful group of caregivers to these precious and beautiful creatures. Karen was a knowledgeable and very personable guide. These caregivers follow the guidelines for humane capativity for these animals and go beyond to ensure that these animals have a high quality rest of their lives. I do wish these animals had more space to roam but again I want to stress the spaces meet guidelines...we just need more people to support this organization to give these animals what they deserve like their habitats. Please support this organization.
