A business makeover/ overhaul is required but the information given was great . As a herpetologist myself I found this very informative. Great for the kids to get to hold the snakes .

This place charges way too much for what it delivers. The photo with the python is the only thing that makes it worth it. It's $11 per person or $50 for a family ticket. I would say don't waste your money here.

Really interesting place to visit. Staff are very knowledgeable, and friendly.They are doing great work in cancer research. Lots of snakes, spiders, frogs and scorpions to look at and you can cuddle a snake if you are game.
