This place is absolutely incredible. Worth every penny. Easily spend hours and not see everything. The habitats are the most real I have ever seen. Fun for all. A must!!!!

i was here about 15 yrs ago when the kids were small. This time it was just me and a friend and it was just as amazing and fun. The gator feeding program is a cant miss.

This place was so neat! It was extremely clean and what a great way to learn about reptiles. You may think it isn't going to be much back off the road but a great stop on your trip!

This place is super cool! Amazing alligators that are as big as cars! Not kidding! They have a good educational talk, and everyone working there was very informed and nice. I'll admit, it's a bit stinky in the indoor part, but very cool and the animals seem well cared for.

Kind of a small place but they had lots of animals to see. We got to see them feed the alligators, and hold a snake, and feed the turtles.

So fun to touch and hold a real alligator. No matter what the age check on the times for feeding the different reptiles and join in the fun.

We are two families of four on vacation. Both families have a three year old and a six year old. The serpentarium was great! The kids didn't look around the indoor exhibits so much as they ran around them, HOWEVER the outdoor exhibits were a blast! Highly recommend the snake presentation given by Anne Clamp. She is an incredible speaker... More
