Although quite small, it does feature many types of reptiles to see. A good information session with a hands on experience with snakes and lizards

The highlight of a visit here is the staff presentation. Very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic biologists. Best part is when they pass around the creatures ( for me it was a bearded dragon and a 10 foot long python) for the patrons to hold.
