Animal visit

Nice small animal exhibit. A little old. Could improve the appearance of the location, but it is a good place to see reptiles.

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.

Last time I visited was in the 80's and I brought my kids back for a visit. The price has increased so initially I was hesitant to go, but woah! times have changed. We had an awesome time! What made it best we're all the friendly staff ready to answer questions and tell you about all the animals. And while... More

This place is amazing! My kiddos touched a baby alligator and fox. We also watched the staff feed the animals (not a part of a show). Lots of flies and the goats are little aggressive, but it is a zoo, so this is expected. Great staff!

It is a small place but the kids just love it! It is crawling with reptiles, cages on cages and there is a great outdoor area with a petting zoo and outdoor cages. There is a wide range of animals both indoor and outdoor with interesting presentations given and you can even pet a snake!

Loved how close you are to the animals at this place and my boys loved holding the various snakes. The petting zoo animals were a little aggressive and not appropriate for children under five.

We had friends in from the Houston/ Humble Texas area. Their are 9 in their family with kids ranging from 19 to 6 years of age. We spent about 3 hours here and enjoyed every moment. Their employees were very helpful and pleasant. We're certain as other friends come to visit we'll take them as well.

I'm so glad we choose to visit this place. My group really enjoyed the time we spent here. The kids were able to see a snake laying eggs and were fascinated by this. There is to much to see here. You can get real close to the animals and some interact with you. The female monkey throwing her food at... More
