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.

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

Ok I need to be honest... the reviews and the road frontage are a little sketchy. We debated this vs the SA Zoo...and we are SO glad we went here. As you can see from my reviews, I don't gush often but this place was really fantastic. The animals were well taken care of, the enclosures were clean and pretty... More

Fun to see all of the scary snakes; liked to feed the camel and have the goats climb all over me. Neat also to see the capybaras and other strange creatures. Hope they're doing okay in the heat. Have been back here a couple of times.

Let me start by saying that my daughter had a great time. They have a nice variety of animals for such a small zoo. The enclosures are small, but the animals appear to be healthy. One of the zookeepers said that they are expanding soon to give the animals more space.

I should have saved the 200.00 from Fiesta Texas and gone straight to the Snake Farm. Its a quirky Roadside Zoo that gives you an intimate up front experience with every kind of snake imaginable. Then you go outside and they have loads of other quirky animals that I have never seen. Top it off and they have a petting... More

Our girls who are 8, 5, 3 and a baby loved this zoo. The zoo keeper who did the shows was amazing. Very knowledgable, great with the kids. He did a talk on the hyenas, wolves and big cats for a larger audience. Later he did a talk about lemurs for about 7 people. Both were excellent. We happened to... More

A really neat place to go & see. From the snakes/reptiles to the "petting zoo" with the little goats, etc.
