We came here in Oct2015 and found a doberman. And the Safari Cafe had bars on all windows. Fencing around the property said no to worry about the dog, to worry about the owner. Not a good place to go.

As much as I hate snakes, this exhibit is completely worth the time and the money. I would most definitely return for a visit.

This attraction is gone. Moved to Florida according to the nice woman going to the nearby burger place. Too bad, my boys were looking forward to visiting.

You get to look at a lot of exotic reptiles. Including: alligators, tortoises, sand boas, Iguanas, and bearded dragons! May be a little overpriced

Neat place to visit! If you like herps, it's a must stop. Owner sets you free to look around all you want for a small fee of $8. Snakes, turtles, frogs, lizards, alligator, crocodile, goats, pot bellied pigs, and much more. Owner does interact with...More
