Small place to see various species of snakes. At the main area a person would give you lessons on various snakes holding them which is quite inforrmative Along with that you would also get to view a few different varieties of turtles and crocodiles Ideal time to spent here would be not more than 30 minutes

Came here on an tour and looked around for about 15 minutes. People were enjoying themselves and i can see why but the conditions for the animals were actually pretty sad. They had a good range of food to purchase and all right parking.
