It boggles my mind that people give this terrible, dirty, sad place good ratings. The animals are quite neglected with feces everywhere. The bunny cage smelled like death. There was definitely something dead down its dirt rabbit hole. The ponies are dirty with overgrown hooves and matted manes. The monkeys are deteriorating mentally and are fed donuts, popcorn and bread... More

Great place for little money! Don't think that your going to a modern park. but love the independence of strolling all over and never knowing what you would see next. If you have little money and a lot of kids........ This is the place for you! A lot of history if you take time to read it. We loved feeding... More

I don't know where to begin. We happened to drive by this place one day a few months back. Looking for somewhere affordable to take the family i remembered this place. Its an older Florida roadside attraction I believe that opened in the 60s. Its known for being a citrus grove since the late 1800s. While they sell and ship... More

Boyett's is a Brooksville tradition from days gone by. There is delicious fresh fruit , souvenirs, a zoo and ice cream. What a delightful way to spend some time.

This is an older Florida attraction that is great for younger children. The animals all appear to be well taken care of and the pens were all clean. Looking forward to bringing our grandkids here on their next visit.

I have been there many many times, love this place. They take very good of thier animals. They are like their babies . They take donations to help them with the care of the animals. The owners are very sweet people. Hope to see them again soon.

There is a surprise inside theses doors. It is different from the rest of the zoos area town. There is lots to see and for a small cost you can purchase feed for hand feeding the animals.

This place is old, smelly and very dirty. Feel sorry for the animals who are kept here in the small dirty enclosures. They have a small restaurant and ice cream parlor would be afraid to eat anything in this place.
