We went awhile ago, would never go back. the croc pond was dirty with little water. Worst of all were the rabbits ,thin,dehydrated and in the blazing sun. Standing on hot wire in cages, probably snake food.

Visited as part of ticket to national museum as was good value when getting the combined ticket. The fish and crocodile sections were particularly small and looked almost cruel. Some of the fish didn't look like they could even turn around.

After visiting the National Museum we were ready for something different, and got it from the adjoining Snake park. *The Good* The park is by necessity closed off from the outside world, reasonably clean and simple to navigate.

Tucked away at the side of the museum is the snake park. Has snakes from around the world most of which were fairly active when we visited which the kids loved.

I loved seeing the greenery and walking the peaceful trails. Enchanting in a fairy tale sort of way.
