Really enjoyed this place. They have a wide variety of animals- mountain lions, hyenas, white lions, capybara, peacock, lemurs, otters, petting zoo- and of course tons of snakes! Brought our nine year old boys and we all enjoyed it. Fun way to spend an hour.

I do NOT like snakes, however, this is a cool place to go. I did work up the nerve to hold a small python and enjoyed seeing the rest of the animals located there. A must see for young and old alike!

SSSSSSSnakes!!!!!! This was a great stop. Brought my grandchildren here as a final stop before heading home from Nana Camp. I am all about making great memories with my G-kids before I am too old to enjoy them. There were brand new baby goats, a llama (grandaughter collects stuffed llamas) and so many interesting animals. We all learned some new... More

This zoo had all sorts of exotic snakes and animals. The shows were educational and entertaining, especially the Croc Feeding on Sundays. It was very dangerous and amazing to watch the handler feed them. The negative side to it....is that the building is small for the crowds and not enough bathrooms. You can pretty much see everything in about 2-3... More

You wouldn't want to travel too far out of your way to visit, but it was worth it especially if you love snakes. The main building is all snakes and a gift shop. The rest is out back. We were surprised to see lions and monkeys. They had little casual demonstrations but were disappointed we couldn't see the gator feeding... More

it is nice to see something for the kids to enjoy close to home. I would suggest not going on a day that it has rained tho cause the outside area is just gravel/dirt. Kids shoes were muddy. My son loved it and the price was good. they had drinks and I believe snacks.

My honest opinion as an animal lover. This place needs some update. Looks like a rundown zoo. The animals seems to be in poor conditions. Cages are very small for their size and needs. The place smelled horrible!! Strong, nasty smell. There was animal feces all over the cages. There was not a single Staff outside for questions or help.... More

The Snake Farm has more than just all different kinds of snakes. They are amazing and even more amazing in their caged spaces. They are well cared for and the Tshirts are worth the trip.
