We took our 7 year old grandson to visit the zoo since he loves reptiles. We were very much impressed with their extensive snake exhibits. The zoo itself isn't as nice though. The animal enclosures are overgrown and too small. We were especially disturbed in...More

I was a little taken back by the entrance fees yet understand that this is a self-supporting operation that handles rescued animals so I bit the bullet and got tickets for myself and 2 grandkids. The snake exhibits were better than I've seen in major...More

Me and my son(11yr old) live near here and we always try to visit as much as we can. We are huge animal lovers and my son loves the snakes and wants to work there or volunteer.

This was the first zoo we've been where the animals seemed right at home and comfortable showing some personality! It was interesting to see this and learn about their stories. Although it was small, we spent a lot of time at each exhibit just watching...More

Charges to much for no more animals that is housed there. Gift shop over priced. Snakes are probably the best thing that is at the zoo. Doesn't look kept up.

Loved seeing Mike the owner feed the alligators, Sampson and Delilah! He tells you about the gators as he daringly feeds them. He also gave snacks to Star, the shy tiger, so be sure to catch the feeding time (it was 1 pm on Sunday...More

Not a very large zoo at all, but it did have some cool animals. They had a TON of snakes, and some very large turtles (and a tortoise). The petting zoo was basically just goats, but it wasn't bad. If you want to feed the...More

There is a portion of the zoo where you can feed and pet some sheep and goats. If you are interested in interactions with more of the animals the after hours guided tour with the owners is great. I don't think they recommend... More
