We went out hoping to do a little hike. There are no trails. This place is like a mini zoo with animals and reptiles in cages. Great for small children but not much else. Takes less than an hour to see everything.

We have taken our grandchildren several times and it is always an exciting experience. We saw them feed the giant python a live rabbit and saw nature take its course. Pretty cool.

My 4 yr old really enjoyed all the different species. It's a small, down to earth environment, very nice staff. Only took an hour and the price is very cheap.
