This was a great experience. I enjoyed being able to interact with the iguanas even though it took me a while to warm up to them. I would definitely recommend it. Nice to see the effort and care given to the iguanas there!

Such a fun experience. Iguana's are like little dinosaurs, some not so little. The baby iguana's were my favorite and being able to feed them was so cool.
