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

Love this place. Friendly staff. Zookeeper shows every 30 min. Many animals are hand fed. Get to pet, hold, and take pictures with the animals in the shows. Met the owner who has hugh renovation and expansion plans. Easy to do in two to three hours. Shaded walkways over 75% of the paths. Price is reasonable and they give you... More

Large and exotic selection of snakes which had the kids fascinated. ..the zoo was small with a few exotic animals (and a sad looking lion). The pet feeding area was akin to a farm yard with only goats and such available to be fed. Highlight of the trip was the kids being allowed to pet and carry a real snake.... More

I love how you can get so much closer to the animals at this zoo. At other zoos the animals tend to hang back and hide and half the time you cant even see many of the animals. At animal world and snake farm they are right there so close you can almost touch them. And sometimes they will bring... More
