I was expecting a dingy snake farm with a couple of petting zoos, I was completely wrong. This place has lions, wolves, bobcats, jaguars, and tons of birds and random aquatics. I was immensely surprised at the selection and how much better the view was compared to a zoo. Being that close to a lion was a little scary almost.... More

Even though the Snake Farm isn't very large its enough to hold the interest of kids for a couple hours. The staff does interactive talks with the patrons about different animals and during feeding time is the best to learn all about the animals. They really have a good variety of snakes but also outdoor animals too (Bison, Lions, Wolves... More

They had a fun variety of animals. Perfect for my 3 year old, rather than a large overwhelming zoo with a cost to match.

My daughter loves this place. She has had the chance to hold several of the boa's and other snake species, lizards and Iguanas and hand fed the deer. Spend a couple of hours and enjoy the day

I am not a snake fan but there is much more to this zoo than reptiles. The petting zoo feeding was especially fun. But don't forget to stop by and say hello to all the birds

Kinda Weird, but for a quick stop to amaze the kids and creep out the adults; it is worth it. This place has been in business since I was a kid, I am now 63. Couldn't resist and finally took my granddaughter on a whim. My wife couldn't stand it, I kinda was amused, and my granddaughter (5 years old)... More

This place exceeded my expectations. From the road it doesn't look as big as it really is. For me, 2 family members and 3 bags of food for the petting zoo it came came out to low $30's. Lots of snakes and animals I did not expect; lions, wolfs, zebras, camel, monkeys, hyena's and birds. Was there for about a... More

Great place to see some amazing creatures at a good price. The price is good for the attractions. I prefer this place over the San Antonio zoo. Its more interactive and the animals are up close. Tons of snakes, turtles, and awesome mountain lions

We went here after we read some good reviews. I have to say that it was disappointing to say the least. We drove almost 2 hrs and paid more than the zoo to go see a few snakes and a few animals. They said they had shows but we waited and nothing. Took probably 30 mins to get through the... More
