DO NOT COME HERE! Seriously, this place treat the animals in a terrible way. Most of the animals live alone in the cage. The cages are poorly equipped and many animals lie on a concrete floor without anything to do or anyone to interact with. Also the living area is too small for moving around. The animals seemed really depressed and many lived within their own manure. The people working there just don’t care. For instance one lama ate the plastic wall and the workers were next to it chatting. If the well-being of these creatures matter to you, do not do the same mistake that I did and give your money to this place. There are certainly locations where the animals are treated well. This is just plain exploitation.

I am pretty sure several creatures were actually dead :( The cages for the snakes, turtles and crocodiles are TINY and bare. I feel guilty that we even went, would not recommend to anyone! I didn't take photos because if was so sad but I wish I had now, to show people.

If you're in Shanghai, you should know that crowd is a big issue. So, if you visit any place during peak hours or holidays, you'd most likely end up getting disappointed. And especially the places that are built in-door like this. We went here on a working day and there were only a few people inside so we enjoyed our trip. My kids loved seeing everything without any problem. When we entered we thought its too small but it has a lot of stuff inside. You can find a number of snakes (python and boa mostly), beetles, spiders, a huge variety of turtles and lizards and some frogs, butterflies, mammals and budgerigar and lovebirds (you can touch). You could easily read the name and info tags as it was in both Chinese and English. Also, the staff was very kind and helpful, some of them could speak English. The only bad thing we noticed was that most of the animals were kept in very small cages especially the big crocodile in such a tiny cage. Also, we expected a lot of different kinds of butterflies but we only found a small area where we could spot them. If you have kids, you should visit. If not, then its best that you skip.

Our expectations weren't super high, but we were in the area and decided to check it out. The place is run down and depressing. The displays are in bad shape and not very informative as well. There are animals as well as insects, and the care taken for them is clearly sub-par. Avoid and do not waste your time and money here

My visit here lasted for around 3 hours, but it can probably be done faster if you don't stop and read every display, and take photograph of each. Entrance fee is usually 60 RMB, but there's some special days now from 9th-15th September 2017, where you pay only half of entrance fee (not only here but at other venue like Shanghai Tower). There a large number of animals to see, which was really great. But I got the feeling that the living area in which animals are situated is too small for most of them, so I felt a bit sorry for them for that reason. Also, this place is really popular which Chinese families with small children, so there you can expect many children around you jumping, screaming and tapping the glass of display cases. All in all, I'm glad I visited this place.
